MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN
Health issues and health policy are much in the news these days. Obamacare, food stamps, childhood obesity, nutrition and school lunches — these are just a few of the health topics making headlines.
Once upon a time, schools of education did not need to consider health issues. They dealt only with subject matter learning and with the training of teachers. Now we know that students do not learn when they come to school either hungry or malnourished. We also know that health continues to be important for the learning and education of youth and adults across the life span.
