“A World of Health: Connecting People, Place and Planet”
In this six-session Northwest Earth Institute discussion course participants will:
- explore the connection between human health and the environment;
- examine the roots of Western medicine and how it has evolved in an industrial society;
- learn about the places where our personal health intersects with the environment—our food, our living spaces, our communities and ultimately, our planet;
- identify actions that promote good health and in turn promote a healthier environment.
The discussion course, sponsored by Environmental Stewardship, will be facilitated by Rex Enoch, PhD, who is retired from Heifer International as the manager of adult education programs. He is now an adjunct faculty member of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at UALR.
