HWP 254 - Women’s Health

Examines selected topics related specifically to women’s health and wellness, and how knowledge, attitude, policy, and health behaviors relate to quality of life and health and well-being for people with female bodies and those who identify as women. Through contemplative practices as well as projects, students will demonstrate increased self-awareness and knowledge related to personal health and wellness and will apply the knowledge and skills learned to make informed decisions about individual health and the health of women as a community. Students will evaluate how physical and social environments and public policies influence both personal and public health through the study of the socio-ecological model of health, social determinants of health, and behavior change theory. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the reproductive cycle, gender and sexuality, positive coping strategies, emotional intelligence, nutrition, body image, health equity, politics of women’s health, and complementary and alternative modalities for women’s health.
