Teaching Philosophy

I try to keep in mind in my teaching that how someone views/interprets new ideas is informed by their learned experiences and ideas they have already encountered.  We live in a socially constructed reality and with that in mind, I provide my students how such a reality facilitates or hinders various aspects of our health.
