The Health Promotion & Education BAS program’s focus is promoting health and wellness through a social justice and culturally responsive lens. We recognize that health is multidimensional and interconnected with a range of factors such as culture, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, gender expression or identity, sexual orientation, ability, and age. We believe that everyone deserves access to quality care, regardless of their social or economic status. And we are working to make that a reality. So, if you care about social justice and equity, join us!
