National Health Education Week

National Health Education Week

Join District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) and the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) in celebrating National Health Education Week  – October 16-20!  The purpose of this celebration is to raise awareness on major public health issues and promote a better understanding of the role of health education.

Health education specialists offer knowledge, skills, and training that complement health care providers, policy makers, educational experts, human resource personnel and many other professionals whose work impacts human health. Health literacy is a large determinant of health status and without these components offered by health education specialists, members in each community can be greatly affected.

DHD#10 would like to recognize our extremely talented team of health educators who spend numerous hours in their communities educating the public on health issues:
