Health Science in Dingle
HS 303 – Health Education & Healthy Lifestyles

Health education and promotion activities are increasingly supported by evidence showing positive impacts on various health indicators, as supported by contemporary research being performed in the Irish health sector. Using Irish population health goals as a framework, this course will use frequently occurring health conditions to explore health education models and health promotion interventions. Attention will also be given to measuring health and the impact of lifestyle choices on healthcare needs and costs within the context of ethical principles.
