The health care field is constantly changing, and Kaplan University continues to offer programs designed to meet the evolving needs of the industry. 

About

We want our students to be prepared for the challenges of this rewarding field the day they graduate and throughout their careers. With the focus of America’s health care system shifting to the prevention of illness and injury and the promotion of healthier lifestyles, a master’s degree in health education from Kaplan University can empower you to help others stay well and live healthier lives.

The responsibilities of a health educator include helping solve community health issues by designing and implementing educational programs that promote healthy lifestyles and behaviors. Health educators collect and analyze data to identify community needs, as well as plan, implement, monitor, and evaluate health education programs that focus on individual and social health issues such as teen pregnancy, HIV prevention, and controlling the spread of infectious diseases. This may include grant writing, resource evaluations, referrals, social marketing and media, community organizing, developing training methods and materials, and publishing.
