It’s not just personal.Your Health Todayteaches Personal Health from a truly inclusive and socially responsible perspective. While each of us has a unique set of individual characteristics that shape our health, other environmental factors have an impact on our wellbeing too. There are the individual factors--genetics, age, and gender. There are interpersonal factors--our friends, family, peers, and coworkers. And, there are broader social factors--where we live, what kind of health care access we have, what laws govern our lives.Your Health Todayincorporates all of these, acting as a guide for healthy living in college and beyond, no matter what the future brings.
