If you are interested in working as a health advocate, take a
broad range of classes in high school. Advocates need an extensive
base of knowledge that covers medical, financial, emotional, and
legal areas. Courses that are especially useful include business,
mathematics, biology, health, and chemistry. Be sure to take four
years of English as well as speech classes, because health
advocates need strong oral and written communication skills.
Learning a foreign language such as Spanish will also be useful.
You may also want to take government, psychology, and computer
science classes to prepare for this career.
