Wellness and Health Promotion Programs

The focus of the Wellness and Health Promotion associate degree is to prepare graduates to work as prevention and interventional wellness professionals. Wellness professionals will reduce the occurrence and recidivism of illness, injury and disease by helping others implement lifestyle changes through the effective application of wellness education and coaching in the home or workplace. Wellness is the dynamic process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more positive balanced and healthy lifestyle. Health Promotion progressively generates interest for the accomplishment and advancement of health. Health and wellness professionals facilitate a partnership and change process that enables clients to change their mindsets, and develop and sustain behaviors proven to improve health and well-being, going beyond what they have been able to do alone. This program will meet the emerging demand for health and wellness professionals in Northeast Wisconsin.
