Owen MurphyAssistant Professor of Health and Human Performance

Owen Murphy says his favorite courses are Human Sexuality, Health Psychology and Sustainable Food and Nutrition.

"To be honest, I love them all. Each course explores aspects of life, sex, stress, and soil that we often sweep under the rug or take for granted," he says.

Owen says that the human body has always fascinated him, originally from a sports performance perspective and more recently from a public health perspective. "We've got one body and one planet, and the health of one is inextricably linked to the health of the other," he says.

Owen describes his teaching style as "open, honest and compassionate."

"I love the diverse student population and sense of community here at COCC," he says. "I enjoy the relationships that develop between students over the term and the conversations that follow. I believe that we can all learn from each other, particularly about a topic as broad and diverse as human health."
