PHR 2103 - Psychosocial, Spiritual and Behavioral Aspects of Health

3 Credit Hours
The course provides insight into the interplay of various risk and protective factors that affect health outcomes at the patient and community level. Students learn about the primary medical or physcial needs of certain populations including those with socioeconomic factors that tend to preclude them from receiving adequate health care. The service learning component of the course prepares students to serve the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of patients via participation in a local community health project targeting special populations. Emphasis is placed on providing preventative health services from a holistic perspective, and addressing patients’ spiritual and emotional needs as warranted. Students gain experience in the logistics of arranging such projects by learning to assess the health-related needs of diverse communities and strategic planning. Active participation in a community health project and personal reflection are required components of the course.
