Unit 1 - Long-Term Health Risks


* This unit will provide students with an in-depth look at major health risks impacting adolescents and adults.  The students will recognize how knowledge, skills and attitudes work together to enable people to behave in health-enhancing, risk-reducing ways.  Some of the topics covered will include heart disease, cancer, stroke, accidents, eating behaviors and steroid use.


Unit 2 - Human Reproduction


* This three week unit is centered on human reproduction.  It includes information on puberty, male and female anatomy and physiology, pregnancy, childbirth, parental responsibility, sexually transmitted infections and birth control methods.  All of the information is kept crinical in nature and abstinence is stressed throughout.  I want you to be comfortable with the information that will be shared with your child, so please contact me with any questions or concerns.  I would more than happy to discuss the unit in greater detail with you.
