They examine settings for practice, professional competencies, inter-professional collaborations, credentialing, professional organizations, use of technology, and ethical issues pertaining to health education. Students will also analyze current issues in the field by reviewing scholarly publications and research pertaining to health education practice. Course assignments also include an introduction to commonly used health education theories and models, and students will have the opportunity to develop a philosophy statement for health education practice in the new millennium.
