ACHS Course Personal and Community Health (HLTH 101) Starts May 16!

When asked why he loves teaching Personal and Community Health (HLTH 101), ACHS instructor Deryl Gulliford says:

HLTH 101 Personal and Community Health is a thorough and excellent survey course covering health principles and practices. It shares practical things which students can do to advance their own health and wellness, and provides a foundation for sharing this knowledge with friends, family and colleagues in a holistic health practice. Some of our topics in HLTH 101 include assessment of physical health, psychological health, social health, intellectual health, spiritual health, and environmental health. We consider wellness in the broadest possible terms. In addition, HLTH 101 explores ways of achieving better health through models of behavior change. And it looks at examination theories and case studies of health risk communication. Community health campaigns and strategies are also presented. In short, HLTH 101 is a great way to learn more about improvement of health......for yourself and for your community. I thoroughly enjoy teaching this course, and I hope to see you in class starting May 16!

Why is personal and community health important for holistic health professionals to understand? Just some of the topics covered are:
