INTRO HERE (HSC 104) The overall health of an individual can be defined as the complete wellbeing of their mental, physical, and social state (WHO, 1948, p. 100). To go a step further this can include the ability to handle physiological and social stress and the freedom from injury or disease (Porta, 2014, p. 128). The major determinants of health include genetic inheritance, physical environment, social environment, and health behavior (Goldsteen et al., 2016). Health care systems created goals and preventative care opportunities to help aid individuals with their overall health and wellness. Three levels of prevention were created, primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention. Primary prevention is utilized to prevent disease or injury before it occurs. Immunization and education on health are just a few examples of primary prevention (Institute for Work & Health, 2019). Secondary prevention are preventative measure that could lead to early diagnosis and applying treatment. Screenings for high blood pressure or exercise programs are examples of secondary prevention. Tertiary prevention are preventative measures that consist of rehabilitation after a serious illness has occurred (Institute for Work & Health, 2019).

    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.
