PE 325 - Women’s Health: Food, Fitness, and Fertility


Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Spring

This course focuses on women’s health and alternative ways health can be achieved. Students gain knowledge and tools necessary to prepare them for a lifetime of health and wellness, including examinations of political, social, and medical pressures which may influence a woman’s ability to “be well.” Varied definitions of wellness are examined. Students establish fitness goals and develop and implement service learning projects throughout the term to improve their personal fitness levels and to improve an organization that affects the community’s health. Literature and research are examined on typical American eating habits; food, nutrition, supplements; and making healthy choices. Students’ concerns and interest help determine an exploration of fertility and sexual health, including such issues as infertility, home birth, birth control, sexually transmitted infections, and sexual and nonsexual relationships. Local experts, including health professionals not typically consulted, serve as guest lecturers throughout the term.Orrison.
