Health educators promote lifestyle wellness to the people they serve. They create pamphlets, posters, packets, and other materials to educate about health topics. They also design and implement health-related programs.
The ultimate goal of health educators is to help people to make healthy decisions. They work in a variety of facilities, including colleges, public health departments, nonprofits, and sometimes in private businesses. They educate on a variety of topics, from drug and alcohol abuse, to smoking cessation, to proper nutrition. Depending on where they work, health educators may focus on different topics.
Ideally, health educators help to reduce healthcare costs. By teaching people about healthy living, they serve as a preventative form of education.
The Bureau of Labor and Statistics predicts health education jobs to grow 37% by 2020, faster than the average career.
