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 the 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.” Students examine a wellness wheel and establish fitness, emotional, spiritual and social goals that they develop and implement through the course of the term. Literature and research are examined to explore the typical American diet. Food pyramids, nutrition labels, supplements and cooking classes are provided and examined in an effort to make healthy food choices. Students fully explore topics of women’s fertility and sexual health, including but not limited to infertility, home birth, birth control, sexually transmitted infections, and sexual and nonsexual relationships. Guest lecturers, yoga, and field trips to local farms and vendors enhance our reading and discussions. Orrison.
