HLSC 2810U – Child and Adolescent Health


This course explores what it means to be a healthy child or adolescent in our society and how students studying in health sciences can influence children/adolescents towards wellness. Influences of global, regional, and local issues such as poverty, food insecurity, the impact of media and social media on child development, and emerging threats to child and adolescent health associated with issues such as bullying, addictions, and disordered eating will be examined. The experience of being a contemporary child or adolescent will be critically explored to enhance student understanding of health and wellness in the 0-18 age range. Theories from multiple perspectives and research based in lived experience will be utilized to enhance health science student advocacy and action with children and adolescents.
