It was a lot of information, very well presented, in several different formats. I really enjoyed the Panel. Also the 5 Healthy Habits were well presented and easy to convey to clients.


This course was boring in that it was all listening to lectures. It would have been nice to read on my own, or have something interactive. I also found the information to be more technical than I needed.
