Expanded Course Description
Causes of U.S. mortality and morbidity have changed dramatically in the last one hundred years. Compared to infectious diseases at the turn of last century, lifestyle factors contribute to the vast majority of premature death and disease. In this course, students will consider the extent to which exercise, diet, drug and sexual choices impact immediate and long-range health. While examining the public impact of health choices such as physical activity, fad diets, and tobacco use, students will also be encouraged to integrate course concepts of disease prevention into their personal practices.

The course begins with an overview of on adaptation physical exercise. Questions addressed include the extent to which strength training, cardio-respiratory training, flexibility training and ergogenic aids facilitate health promotion and disease prevention. This is followed with coverage of dietary and nutrition questions related to weight management, disordered eating and health concerns surrounding special or fad diets. Finally, issues surrounding stress and sexual health choices are examined. Referencing the Health Center Survey, the health status and practices of University of Oregon students will be compared to national data on variety of controllable and non-controllable health risk factors. Great emphasis will be placed on critical examination of health messages, fads, and misconceptions and that abound in popular culture.
