Being able to reflect on numerous areas throughout the course is an important aspect when looking at the development and skills to better my potential as a health professional. This class has endorsed many opportunities such as working with others, problem solving with creating health promotion solutions, and presenting research and ideas. By learning objectives and information regarding the opportunities above, it has allowed room to continue in taking the next step towards my career in health promotion. Question 1:

I also am very responsible and take accountability for things that I do. Whether I mess up or perform poorly, I will always provide reason and letter others know it was my fault. Lastly, I believe that I work hard on tasks or projects that I’m given. I try and do my best as well as make sure it’s in a timely manner.

Like the models mentioned above, I thought forming approaches targeting policy, built environments, and system changes were very useful. I struggled with mixing these components with programming solutions, but with practice it was easier to distinctly design solutions individually. A last segment of this class I feel is important to apply to my future profession is being able to keep updated on current health
