HEALTH EDUCATION STANDARDS- BASED CURRICULUM MAP Only one of the eight standards, (Standard 1) is related to health content . With the abundance of health information part of the challenge for health educators is to identify the most important information and ideas that are essential to health promotion, safety, and disease prevention. Think of this as “functional knowledge”. For example, being able to name every bone in the human body might be a good trivia question, but it has little chance of influencing the likelihood of an individual’s decision to increase their physical activity levels.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
