Description: Health Promotion is an interdisciplinary field that encompasses a range of domains, including educational, political, regulatory, and organizational supports, in pursuit of individual, group, and community health. The field of health promotion includes both the research and delivery of interventions and programs related to the determinants of optimal health. Specifically, behavioural and environmental determinants that influence the health of individuals and communities, such as healthy lifestyles, public policy, community organization and mobilization, and social and physical environments, are highlighted in this area of concentration. The methods of health promotion draw from a number of disciplines (e.g., psychology, sociology, political science, geography, human ecology).
