Lifestyle Management Online

The Lifestyle Management Program is designed for students who want to work in the prevention of chronic diseases, designing and implementing preventive programs for corporations and community organizations. The program is also intended for health professionals to empower them to provide lifestyle change interventions and promote healthy behaviors for their patients. The curriculum emphasizes interventions based on scientific data and established behavioral and learning theories that promote individual and public health through the processes of education, health behavior change, and health promotion. The program also focuses on teaching public health practice courses that are needed to possess core skills in public health, evaluating scientific literature, and in understanding and applying the science of disease prevention in the context of mind-body interaction. More practice-oriented classes teach the scientific basis and applications of exercise and nutrition counseling, tobacco cessation, and health behavior change techniques. Graduates may use the skills acquired in the program to assess employee health, corporation culture and resources in order to provide programs and activities to help manage chronic diseases, decrease health expenditure and provide healthy and happy work environments. They are academically prepared to apply preventive methodologies to chronic diseases and risk factors, conduct individual health assessments, provide lifestyle counseling, properly evaluate and apply lifestyle-related research findings, and lead and evaluate health promotion projects.
