Sahar Ali started this petition to UT Administration

The current UT degree plans require 6 different flags that must be fulfilled regardless of major and school. A health and wellness flag for classes related to nutrition, physical and mental wellness would be extremely beneficial to making preventative health care a priority for students in such pivotal years of their lives. As 6 flags is the maximum the degree plans allow, one of the 2 writing flags should be replaced with this health and wellness flag. 

A few classes that may fulfill this flag include introduction to kinesiology and introduction to nutrition as well as upper division nutrition and kinesiology courses. The subject matter related to health and wellness is vital knowledge for students working so hard to create a successful future. Without proper care during youth, the hard work that is being done may not be enjoyed in the future due to chronic illness and pain that could have been avoided. This flag is a proactive and far reaching way to get the longhorn community actively thinking about health and wellness now.
