Professional Organizations

One of the best ways to network and keep updated on local and national health trends is to participate in a professional health organization or association. We recommend several state and national organizations to our students and alumni. These organizations offer annual conferences where CHES/MCHES (Certified Health Education Specialist) credits can be earned. In addition, the national organizations publish peer reviewed journals. Our department has listed a number of recommended organizations. Take time to explore their web pages and get involved.
