Philosophy of Health Education WorksheetInstructions:Using the prompt in the left column, provide your responses within the space provided in the right columnDescribe what “health” means to you (minimum 3 sentences)I would describe health as the balance and well being of one’s physical, mental, and social interactions. Health care workers are appointed to help individuals in each of those aspects in terms of health. With complete participation by both parties health can be achieved through the knowledge of medicine and the empathy of public health. Describe what you “value” the most (i.e., friendships, family, your health,etc)My initial answer was “my dog” however I realize that was justthe beginning and it’s much deeper than that. As someone who has had to go through life alone, I genuinely value each and every living thing on this planet. I value every being I comeacross no matter our who or what they are. That is why I valuehealth and medicine, because it’s the healing of every living thing.In regards to the above prompt, please describe WHY you value this the mostI genuinely could never understand the concept of deliberatelycausing harm or just simply being selfish. I’ve always been ableto empathize with every being I come across because I physically can’t not do it.

Using health education I will be sure to guide my patient to the best resources and give them the correct information for their particular circumstance. For example, most capsular contracture patients are victims of either malpractice or poor medical resources, both a direct result of living in low income communities. Therefore I would consider my patients' entire situation in and outside of my office when trying to ensure health literacy in any circumstance. Find and cite an inspirational quote that is personal to you - this can come from anywhere (from a friend,family member, celebrity, sports legend, etc)Describe why this quote is inspirational to you”The only thing that separates beings is how they interact withother beings.” - Jeffery Hector My dad is the reason I am the way I am and I couldn’t thank him enough.
