Where are you getting your health information? Who is encouraging you to live a healthy and safe lifestyle?
This week marks the 2013 National Health Education Week sponsored by the Society for Public Health Education and has been celebrated since 1995. The week is aimed to focus national attention on a major public health issue and promote consumer’s understanding of the role health educators play in promoting public health.
The term, health educator, is a title given to a person working to help others understand or learn more about their health, the options available to them, promotes healthy choices, and may be working in your schools, colleges or universities, health departments, community organizations, health facilities, worksites, or insurance companies.
Thank you to all the health educators across the country! Recognize your local health educator this week and visit the Society for Public Health Education website for more information. Be Safe. Stay Healthy.
