Health, Well-Being and Development

What does Health, Well-Being and Development mean?

Illness and disease have become major issues of our time. The health, well-being, and development of the world’s peoples have become a paramount concern. Complex issues, like childhood obesity, require in depth understanding and analysis in order to understand not only the root causes of the condition, but also viable, realistic treatment and prevention programs as well. Health, well-being, and development represent broad areas of study and encompass mental, emotional, social, and physical components. Health care systems, the connection between health and economic success and issues surrounding the role of mental health in society are examples of issues this theme could address. This theme can contribute to greater understanding for those studying areas such as Anthropology, Athletic Training, Biology, Education, Health and Human Performance, International Business, Journalism, Native American Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Social Work, and Sociology.
