Individual health and well-being is partially determined by the values we hold and the choices we make as individuals. Equally important is the environment that enables us to make those choices that maintain and enhance our health. This course emphasizes the importance of the environment, both physical and social, and how it is implicated in the work of health promoters and other health professionals. The content reviews principles of natural and social ecology, the role of policy in shaping our environments, and research aimed at understanding the impact of various environmental conditions on health. Students will explore environmental health issues within the community and propose educational strategies to maintain and enhance health and well-being.
