Health Education Services

Health Education is the profession of educating people about their health. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Okanagan Charter  defined Health Promotion as the interconnectedness between individuals and their environments, and recognizes that “health is created and lived by people within the settings of their everyday life: where they learn, work, play and love.”  

As  Health Educators at a Univeristy Health Center, the major responsibilities are to plan, implement and evaluate health promotion and education programs for program participants, with a broader goal of collective impact approach to cultivate health and well-being into the campus culture.  


According to the Center for Disease Control, "well-being includes the presence of positive emotions and moods (e.g., contentment, happiness), the absence of negative emotions (e.g., depression, anxiety), satisfaction with life, fulfillment and positive functioning."

5 Different types of Well-Being: 

  • Emotional Well-Being. The ability to practice stress-management Well-Being Appletechniques, be resilient, and generate the emotions that lead to good feelings.
  • Physical Well-Being. The ability to improve the functioning of your body through healthy eating and good exercise habits.
  • Social Well-Being. The ability to communicate, develop meaningful relationships with others, and maintain a support network that helps you overcome loneliness.
  • Workplace Well-Being. The ability to pursue your interests, values, and purpose in order to gain meaning, happiness, and enrichment professionally.
