Topics covered include stress management, healthy eating, weight management, fitness, environmental sustainability, interpersonal wellness, and substance abuse/misuse, as well as prevention of chronic and communicable diseases. The lecture portion is intended to help students evaluate their personal health habits, behaviors, and attitudes while educating them about how to establish or maintain healthy lifestyle practices to improve both quality and quantity of life.
