Health educators are responsible for keeping people informed on how to live healthy lifestyles including proper nutrition and exercise family planning and prenatal care. It is their job to determine the needs of the population with whom they work and to keep people informed (either an individual or group basis) about relevant health issues. They often oversee programs of inoculation for illnesses such as the flu. In addition they gather written materials on topics such as sexually-transmitted diseases and sometimes they arrange for guest speakers to give talks in their areas of expertise. Health educators work for federal and state governments and for community-based centers. Some health educators teach at colleges and universities or work in clinics at educational institutions. The website www.ehow.com says entry-level health educators need a bachelor's degree in health education and they should also have some background in psychology and human development. Those seeking careers in public health need a master's degree in a field related to health. All health educators must participate in continuing education throughout their careers in order to stay aware of new developments in the field. According to the website www.jobdescriptions.net health educators can become certified health education specialists (CHES) by earning a passing score on an exam administered bi-annually by the National Commission for Health Education. Employment opportunities for health educators are expected to grow at a greater than average rate in the coming decade. Earnings depend on their level of their education employer and their experience. However the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (www.bls.gov) says that the median salary for health educators is approximately $44000 a year. Those employed by hospitals tend to earn high salaries than those that work for family service agencies.
