Health Education is instruction in concepts, understandings and behaviors in regard to several dimensions of health. Instructional areas are in mental health, nutrition, alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, safety, disease prevention and control, environment and public health, family life education and other health related areas. Within each content area students examine their behavior, identify the decision making process and alternate behaviors and evaluate benefits and/or consequences. Students will know about and be able to use valid health information, products and services. This process of resource management and examining, evaluating and making decisions affecting behavior is intended to promote quality living and a healthful life style.
