This syllabus develops a foundation in anatomy and physiology. It emphasizes critical thinking skills necessary for discernment regarding to the various, and often conflicting, information presented in the media. The syllabus incorporates cutting-edge research in health science, and includes a fitness component that fulfills one-half of the Oak Meadow physical education requirement. This comprehensive and pioneering syllabus includes chapters on nutrition, wellness, disease prevention, substance use, sexuality, aging, healing, and alternative therapies. The projects and activities are personal, creative, and meaningful to the high school student.
