Health Science Major:
Community, Worksite and Public Health Educator Concentration
As health science major at Truman, you can choose the Community, Worksite and Public Health Educator as your area of concentration.
The Community, Worksite and Public Health Educatoris concentration is designed for students who plan to pursue a career as a disease prevention/health promotion specialist in voluntary agencies (Red Cross, American Lung Association, Women’s Health Clinics), local agencies (private companies, HMO’s, PPO’s, hospitals), county or state agencies (health departments), or federal agencies (CDC, U.S. Department of Health). The specific job may be a one-on-one approach (HIV/AIDS Educator) or it may involve an entire state, as in the case of coalition building.
Leadership, ability to work independently, health knowledge, and a vast resource library are the principle ingredients that make up the Community Health Educator. It is not unlikely that a person in this position would be responsible for grant proposals or alternative sources of funding, especially when employed with voluntary agencies. In addition, the health educator may have some research and writing responsibilities.
These type of jobs require excellent writing and oral communication skills. The expectation of most employers is to minimize or eliminate illness and injury through the assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation of quality health education/health promotion programs.
