Students will access and evaluate health/wellness resources (i.e., agencies, Internet, media, speakers).

As indicated by the “W”, this is a writing intensive course and will follow university guidelines for such courses. Most of the assignments will involve group-based problem solving. This course is offered Spring Semesters with a maximum enrollment of 35.
