Health Educator Information
February 27th, 2017

As a Health Educator you teach people about behaviors that promote wellness, healthy living and even prevent disease. Through collecting data and discussing health concerns with members of specific populations or communities, you develop and implement strategies to improve the health of individuals and communities. Your patients include: the general public, at-risk populations, diabetes patients, expectant mothers and heart patients. Preparing presentations, conducting health screenings and patient outreach, and serving as point of contact for patients are just a few of your duties as a Health Educator.

Skills needed to be a successful Health Educator are your communication skills, organization and ability to teach others. Your active listening, judgment and decision making will be an important part of the job. Preparing presentations will become second nature as well as your administrative skills.

To prepare for your interview the interviewer may want to see samples of your work. Bringing a portfolio of your work could be an easy and visual way to show your best work. Discuss presentations you created, workshops you led and groups you've created for your at-risk population.
