The Community Health Education program is designed to prepare the student to be a specialist skilled in planning and implementing programs that enhance health awareness. This multidisciplinary program facilitates the involvement of individuals, communities, and community-based organizations to promote well-being, improved health status and positive health behaviors.
The Community Health Education program's goal - to prepare health education specialists - is implemented through the program's curriculum and internship experiences which reflect the standards of the American Association of Health Education (AAHE) and National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc. (NCHEC). These standards and competencies address content, assessment needs, planning, implementation, and evaluation of programs, educational strategies, being a resource person, and communication and advocacy.
