Furthermore, those majoring in health and education are usually committed to their own health and are excited about helping others improve theirs. For example, health educators working in health departments often are concerned with the health of the community they serve and may develop programs to impact people living in the community. One of the most exciting opportunities these days for mental health professionals is the proliferation of online lectures and webinars. Both of these projects are housed in Community Health Works, which is a partnership of SF State and City College of San Francisco. This lesson defines health education and goes over many of its important facets.
In January 2011 a large study of PSHE education in primary and secondary schools in England was completed by the Centre for Education and Inclusion Research (CEIR) at Sheffield Hallam University. As we reflect upon our teaching and educating our clients, we must consider the patient’s readiness to learn, the barriers involved, their emotional, mental, physical aspect of health promotion and disease prevention, their values of health, their ability to afford medical treatment or not, and coordinate a teaching plan, accordingly. Well there are only a few areas in our lives that we have any control over and that is our attitude and our health.
Since that time, the department has blossomed, and it currently offers a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Health Education with emphases in community-based health, holistic health, and school health. Practical field training is required as part of the public health curriculum and student teaching is a required part of the health education curriculum. UTSA Student Health Services is recognized as an essential support to empower students as informed health care consumers. However, all students may receive information and referrals to health services.
