Health Promotion Public Health Education

Fresh SaladPublic Health Educators serve as specialists who provide education, advocacy and organizational support within communities, schools, health care facilities, businesses, and public and private agencies.  Health educators have basic core competencies in health education and health promotion as set forth by the National Commission on Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC).  In addition, health educators have the skill sets necessary to provide health information to the public.  Health educators are trained professionals in community health and wellness and provide training and technical assistance to individuals and communities.  Health educators are “change agents” employed to promote a shared vision for the practice of Health Education and Promotion.  This is accomplished through fostering partnerships within the profession and within the community and informing the public about best practices to stay healthy.
