National Health Education Week is Monday October 21 – Friday October 25, 2019
We want to celebrate health education with you!
Join us in promoting the critical role that health education specialists play in improving the health and wellbeing of individuals, families, communities and schools through health education and promotion. Every day we will feature profiles of CHES® and MCHES® working hard within many different settings to promote health and wellness. There are many environments and professional settings where health education specialists work, but all CHES® and MCHES® work toward one common goal: creating healthier lives!
