Each school year there are multiple opportuntities for students to attend professional conferences such as the Health Educators' Institute, American Public Health Association, Society of Public Health Education, and more! Attending conferences is a great way to network with other health educators and learn about current best practices being used in the field.
Lunch & Learn Workshops
Throughout the school year, the HPE program hosts a Lunch & Learn series for students to learn more about specific health topics, professional development, internships, and much more! And we provide free lunch to all attendees! Lunch & Learn Workshop dates and times are advertised in the HPE Newsletter, social media pages, and on Blackboard.
CHES Study Group
Each semester the HPE program hosts a study group for the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) exam. The exam is administered in April and October, therefore study groups take place in the few months leading up to those exam days. Find out more information about the CHES exam.
Professional Development Events
Throughout each academic year, the HPE Program hosts professional development events. Each fall, the HPE Involvement Fair is held, where students have the opportunity to network with local health organizations and learn more about volunteer and internship opportunities at those sites. Each spring, the Mock Interview Day takes place. Students are able to take part in one-on-one mock interviews with community health and exercise professionals. After the interview is conducted, students recieve individualized and constructive feedback from their interviewer which will help them as they go on to pursue completitive internships and career opportunities.
