What is Health Sciences?

Health sciences, according to ASAHP, is the segment of health care that delivers identification, evaluation and prevention of diseases; nutrition; health systems management; and rehabilitation services.

As a health sciences professional, you will need to rely on critical thinking and a well-rounded understanding of your health sciences occupation, which you can continue to develop through further education.
