Health Educators

Outlook

Employment of health educators is projected to increase by 11 percent from 2019 to 2029, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. This rate is much faster than the average for all careers. Studies show that a vigorous health education program in a community can improve patient health outcomes and reduce health care costs. These fact-based benefits of health education programs suggest that there will be a strong need for health educators—especially in medically underserved communities that have rates of illness and death that are higher than the U.S. average. Opportunities will be best for heath educators with considerable experience and for those who have earned certification from the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing.
