Health Education

Health education is that continuum of learning experiences which enables people, as individuals and as members of social structures, to make informed decisions, modify behaviors, and change social conditions, in ways which are health enhancing.  Students learn to obtain, interpret, and apply health information and services in ways that protect and promote personal, family, and community health.

A health educated person will be able to:

  • apply health promotion and disease prevention concepts and principles to personal, family, and community health issues;
  • assess, achieve, and maintain health enhancing behaviors throughout life;
  • identify and manage controllable health risks;
  • respect and promote the health of others; and
  • select, access, and use health services, products and information.
