Foundations of Health Education

Foundations of Health Education

Many health education students find history, philosophy, ethics, and professional preparation “dry” topics that lack excitement or any “real” link to the practice of health education. Quite to the contrary, these aspects of our profession come alive as we discover how closely our present is linked to our past; examine the variety of individual philosophical approaches to health education; engage in lively debate over questions of ethics; and continue to seek and gain recognition and credibility for health education through continuing professional preparation and development efforts. Students of health education benefit from in-depth understanding of these foundations areas.
