Are you passionate about health and wellness?  Interested in a career in the health field?  Or do you simply want to learn more about how to live a healthier lifestyle?  Mesa Community College has classes to fit your needs!

The Health Science program at MCC is ideal for those who wish to pursue healthy-lifestyle interests. We offer entry-level courses, such as First Aid/CPR, Healthful Living, Prevention and Treatment of Athletic Injuries, and more.  These courses can be a stepping stone to degrees in Health Promotion, Healthy Lifestyle Coaching, Public Health or Athletic Training. 

Need to recertify in CPR but don’t want to take a full class?  Mesa offers a half credit, one-day re-certification class for the American Heart Association BLS for Healthcare Providers CPR course.
