    What is Health?

    Health is a combination of physical, mental/emotional and social well being.

    The word health comes from an old English word meaning “to make sound,

    whole, or well.” Health comes from the same root as the word heals.

    What is our Educational Goal?

    Health Education means providing information in such a way that it influences students and other people to change their attitudes and take positive actions regarding their health. One of the goals of health education is to improve the quality of life. To develop a more productive and healthier lifestyle while on earth.

    Health Education can give you the tools you need to maintain and improve your total health and wellness.You can use this knowledge; the values and morals gained throughout your lifestyle.An individual then can carry this knowledge over to the next generation to come.
