Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
The Michigan Department of Education's vision for health education is a continuum of learning experiences which enables people to make informed decisions, modify behaviors, and change social conditions in ways that are health enhancing, with students learning to obtain, interpret, and apply health information and services in ways that protect and promote personal, family, and community health. The seven standards state that all students will be able to: (1) apply health promotion and disease prevention concepts and principles to personal, family, and community health issues; (2) access valid health information and appropriate health promoting products and services; (3) practice health enhancing behaviors and reduce health risks; (4) analyze the influence of cultural beliefs, media, and technology on health; (5) use goal setting and decision making skills to enhance health; (6) demonstrate effective interpersonal communication and other social skills which enhance health; and (7) demonstrate advocacy skills for enhanced personal, family, and community health.
