General education philosophy statement
Health Studies General Education courses encourage critical thinking about health, systems that influence individual and community health, and strategies that promote individual, community, and environmental health and well-being. Communities, organizations, institutions, and policies can support or hinder a child’s optimal health and well-being. By exploring these factors, we can serve as a change agent in addressing the health of all children.
