Skills-Based Health Education – Reframing How We Teach Health Education

In this online, virtual workshop session participants will explore a skills-based approach to health education and consider how a skills-based approach allows for both personalization and application in ways that benefits individual and community outcomes. Participants will consider their own views of health and well-being and become partners in the creation of learning experiences that support students in their own journey of health and well-being.
