To celebrate National Public Health Week, Scottsdale Community College’s Health Sciences programs are presenting information and resources on public health and how to live a healthier lifestyle. Everyone is invited to attend this free online event, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., on April 1.

SCC faculty and students representing the college’s Nursing, Exercise Science, Nutrition, Recreation Management, and Yoga programs will present on:

Quick Ways to Improve Mental Health – receive tips on how to improve mental health and daily life. Mental health awareness is a big part of health promotion and maintenance as part of holistic care.

Creating Balance in Your Exercise Program – learn why someone should include a variety of exercise types into their workout program.

Breaking the Myth About Carbohydrates – discover how carbs work in the body and why we need them, as healthy eating choices can play a big role in our overall well-being.

Positive Impact of Yoga on the Body and Mind – experience a moment of calm in a busy day, along with a glimpse into the benefits of yoga on the body and mind.

Sponsored by the American Public Health Association for over 25 years, the National Public Health Week, which runs April 4-10, 2022, is a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our nation's health. 

SCC’s Health Sciences programs provide comprehensive training for health-related work in the hospital, healthcare, or exercise and fitness settings. In addition to preparing students for employment, students can consider transferring to a four-year program. So, whether you want to be a nurse, an EMT, a physical therapist, a community health worker, or a personal trainer, SCC’s programs give you the flexibility you need to pursue your goals.
