Abstract

Influencing knowledge to establish healthy habits and behaviors in our youth is the cornerstone to the necessity of health education as a skill set. Research has shown that adequate K-12 health education can reduce risk behaviors in adolescents (Freudenberg & Ruglis, 2007). Health teachers desire specific training in particular health education domains and professional development improves teaching knowledge and skills (Summerfield, 2001).
