HPA 2320 - PSYCHOSOCIAL ASPECTS OF HEALTH
This course will increase students' understanding of the diverse personal, socio-cultural, and institutional factors that influence health, physical activity, and nutrition-related behaviors, and ultimately intervention design and approach. The course will cover the social determinants of health and health disparities, theoretical models of health behavior change, and intervention/behavior change strategies and tools. Students coming away from this course will have a better understanding of how to apply health behavior change models to promote physical activity and healthy eating in diverse populations through tailored interventions.
