ALLEGRA Learning Solutions releases a new Certificate in Wellness and the Environment
By: ALLEGRA Learning Solutions
Every day, in everything we do, we interact with our environment. Whether it is drinking water, breathing our air, eating food raised from the earth, or dealing with weather and seasons, our health is supported by the health of our planet. The connection between protecting the natural environment and safeguarding human health has been recognized for a long time. Exposure to harmful chemicals, air pollution, and biological agents on the human body can dramatically affect our health and the health of the entire planet.
Increasingly, climate changes and the strains of a growing human population put all life on earth, including human life, in peril. Preserving the variety of life on earth is also essential to human health. Understanding how human health and environmental health are connected is the focus of this certificate program.
If you are interested in learning more about the intersection between wellness and our environment, this certificate program is for you. Courses in this certificate include:
· Are Your Air and Water Safe? How Air and Water Quality Affect Health
· The Global Health Impacts of Overpopulation
· Human Health and Climate Change—Is There a Connection?
· Is Your Home Hazardous to Your Health?
Single courses can be purchased as well. This innovative certificate program is invaluable to health care professionals and the public alike!
