Health

Department Description
Health courses help create and disseminate knowledge with the aim of preventing disease and promoting the health of populations in the United States and worldwide. Our courses are concerned with personal and community health promotion. Included in our offerings are specialized training for Emergency Medical Technicians, First Responders, and those charged with basic life support. In addition, we offer a course that examines the unique biology and other aspects of gender focused on wellness from a womans perspective. Another studies the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of one’s health as relates to sexuality. Today’s culture faces challenges to societal health, as well as that of the individual. Drug Awareness is therefore considered by many to be an essential three-credit course.

Department Learning Outcomes
Students will be able to:
*Understand and apply the basic principals related to health and wellness with a goal of promoting both individual health/wellness and that of the greater society as well.
*Recognize and define healthy behaviors as they exist in the areas of physical, mental, emotional, and social health as well as the spiritual aspects of one’s health as it relates to sexuality.

Employment Opportunities
Whether one is working toward a greater undergraduate degree or planning more immediate career goals following CLC, health courses provide relevant preparation for managing one’s personal health in relation to values and choices that await everyone. Several health courses at CLC impart advanced knowledge to further the careers of emergency care professionals. Successful completion of the 5-credit EMT course qualifies the student to sit for the National Registry of EMTs examination. Internships may be available for health credits from CLC. There is a growing need for public health officials and private-sector experts capable of improving the quality of life in the workplace and at home.

Special Department Information
Students who wish to enroll in the Emergency Medical technician course must first have CPR certification.
