Coalition of National Health Education Organizations (CNHEO): Call for Public Comment

A health education specialist is dedicated to reaching the highest possible standards of conduct and to encouraging the ethical behavior of all those with whom they work.

The Coalition of National Health Education Organizations (CNHEO) Task Force has been working diligently to establish a strategic vision among the profession and develop goals and strategies for the profession.  Recently, the Task Force reviewed and revised the Code of Ethics for the Health Education Profession. 

As the last step in this process, the Task Force is soliciting feedback from the Coalition Member Organizations and their members during this open comment period from Nov 2-Dec 15 as to what further edits need to be made to the Code of Ethics.

In the Survey Link, you will find the Code of Ethics Preamble, Article I, and Article II. It should take a minimum 30-40 minutes to complete:

We request responses by 11:59 pm CT, Sunday, December 15th.
