Emily Leung Weekly Journal #1 February 3 rd , 2011 TA: Peter Kaminski In the lectures of the past week we had obtained a lot of new material from Dr. Gerber and the guest lecturer who talked about tobacco and the effects of smoking cigarettes. Dr. Gerber went over the six dimensions of holistic health: Physical Health, Emotional Intelligence, Intellectual Health, Social Health, Environmental Health, and Spiritual Health. From the guest lecture I had learned that cigarettes have a variety of different chemicals inside them, and it is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States. In this weeks reading, “A Qualitative Study of Attitudes, Beliefs, Practices Among 40 Undergraduate Smokers” by Beti Thompson, discussed the study of college students who smoke and the influences surrounding them. The results from this study state that colleges can help students stop smoking with a persistent smoking policy and having a non-smoking campaign on campus. In the article by Mildred Blaxter, “How is Health Defined?” it discusses the different principles of the biomedical model.

    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.
