WHES 2026 - Healthy Lifestyle Choices for Future Health Care Providers

Credit Hours: 3.00
Prerequisites: None

(formerly PHED 2026)

This course introduces future health care providers to current health practices and theory. Using dimensions of wellness and the perspective of a health care practitioner as a framework, students assess their own lifestyle choices and assess how those choices may influence work situations including interactions with patients. Using knowledge gained from self‑assessments and lecture, students evaluate their physical and emotional capabilities as they relate to skill sets needed for a respiratory therapist, medical assistant, surgical technologist, occupational therapy assistant, physical therapy assistant, registered nurse, nuclear medical tech, and clinical lab assistant. Health and assessment topics include body composition, cardiovascular, back injury and pain, infectious disease, chronic stress, cancer, weight management and nutrition, physical activity, and the dimensions of wellness.
