Course: Integrating Social and Behavioral Theory into Public Health: Foundations/Macro-Mezzo Levels
We have all tried to change a health-related behavior, and no doubt had greater or lesser degrees of success. Over the course of this semester, through lab exercises and assignments, you will have an opportunity to attempt a health-related behavior change again, while considering some of the many social and behavioral factors that can be helpful or a hindrance. In the first quarter we will focus on the change itself, and in the second quarter we will focus on writing about it in a way that might be persuasive to other individuals or policy makers.
