    Welcome to Personal & Community Health!  In this course we explore the personal and social aspects of health, where we'll carefully analyze the interplay and impacts of behavioral, environmental, social, spiritual, occupational, and physical factors. You will actively apply fundamental principles of wellness and health science to shape an informed and personalized approach to your mental and physical well-being.

    Throughout our exploration, you'll have the chance to reflect on your own health habits and understand how they may contribute to the risk of disease. This course is all about empowerment. By the end, you'll be equipped to craft a personalized wellness program aimed at reducing risk factors not only for yourself but also for your loved ones and the wider community.

    The course modules and the book's chapters are a perfect match, working together to support your learning. Each week, you will read the information in the Canvas modules and then read the assigned chapters before completing your assignments. Remember, I’ll be here to support you throughout the course—please do not hesitate to contact me!
