Morris publishes book on health education

Health education has always focused on identifying health risks and teaching behavior modification. Since very few people are randomly ready to change their behavior, director of health education Richard Morris’ Your Choice, Your Health changes the narrative. 

With 35 years of experience in health education, coaching, and professional boating and scuba diving, Morris focuses on helping individuals arrive at their own conclusions and feel confident and knowledgeable about how to make better decisions. Risk factors will be identified and discussed, but this book moves forward to prepare the reader for action. Morris hopes to spark discussion around the concepts of achieving self-efficacy, practicing mindfulness, and focusing on internalizing your health locus of control.

Each chapter of this book presents evidence-based facts on a topic, but in a positive, responsible manner that promotes self-awareness and the power of personal control.
