Heart Health

Course Summary

Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in the developed world and incidence is rising in developing countries. Despite media attention to heart disease, many people remain unaware of the risk factors. This eight-session course, written by a cardiac specialist, covers the most important topics in cardiovascular health and heart-healthy living. The course can be taught as a community health seminar, as part of an evangelism project, during a health expo, in small groups, and in many other venues. The 8-module course creates friendships with members of the community as an opening for addressing spiritual health at a later time.

What do I need to know?

After completing this course, you will earn 0.8 CEU and a certificate of completion in your Adventist Learning Community e-portfolio.

This course has good information. I liked the format of reading the PowerPoint and taking the quiz. I couldn’t get the regular power point to load, but I could get the presenters view to load.
