Part I: Write your Philosophy of Health
This week’s discussion board assignment requires you to write and share your personal philosophy of health. Your philosophy needs to be at least 250words long. Since this is a personal statement, it is appropriate to write in first person tense (I, you, me etc.). If you use any sources, such as an inspiriting quotation, be sure to use APA format to document the quotation and cite it in a reference list at the end of your statement. Quotes do not count in the 250-word minimum. Be creative, succinct, and clear. I would like to read your unique thoughts.
As a future health professional, it’s important to explore your own views about health. There is no doubt that as you go along in your academic major, and have experiences in the field, that your philosophy will change. However, as you begin your journey into health education, you should summarize your views thus far as a starting point. You can use this written health philosophy for your professional portfolio and expand and change your health philosophy as you learn and experience more.
