Masters in Health Education

With the costs of health care rising and the demand for medical services remaining steady, the medical community is aggressively advocating for a more sustained focus on illness prevention; and this is where health educators are having the largest impact.


Professionals interested in the Master of Public Health-Health Education degree will be at the forefront of educating patients on how to structure their lifestyles so as to achieve optimal health, particularly for those living with chronic conditions like diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

According to the American Diabetes Association, about 7.8% of the total population, roughly 23.6 million Americans, are currently living with diabetes. Yet, the ADA estimates that nearly 1.6 million cases of diabetes are diagnosed each year. The Centers for Disease Control have also identified the fact that about 34% of all Americans are overweight. Astoundingly, 18% adolescents are considered obese as well.

Because of these and other health issues, the public health community has placed a greater sense of urgency on educating the public about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, which is leading to a more substantial need for qualified health educators.
