HHK 300 8 - Health Program Planning


(0.5 unit)

Planning of health promotion and education programs occurs at many levels, and is driven by assessment. Students will be asked to examine the epidemiology of key health issues on a local, state, regional, national, and global level. Subsequently, students will identify behavioral, environmental, and genetic risk factors for these health issues, as well as the associated predisposing, reinforcing and enabling factors. Discussion of health behavior models and theories will be approached from both a historical and applied perspective. This information will be synthesized in a culminating project where students will plan a behavioral intervention for an assigned health issue. Prerequisite: HHK 114 , junior or senior status or consent. Spring
