Course Overview

PPZ3C online enables students to examine the factors that influence their own health practices and behaviours as well as those factors that contribute to the development of healthy communities.

Students will develop the skills necessary to make healthy choices and create a personal wellness plan. They will also design initiatives that encourage others to lead healthy, active lives.
