Welcome to the Community Health Education Program

What is Community Health Education?

Community health education is a social science driven process that promotes health and prevents disease within a diverse population. The purpose of health education is to positively influence the health behavior of individuals and communities as well as the living and working conditions that influence their health. Those who study community health learn how to design and implement programs that promote health and prevent disease within certain target populations in the community.
