National Health Education Week was created in 1995 by the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) to focus on increasing national awareness on major public health issues and promoting a better understanding of the role of health education.
What can I expect?
Inspired by SOPHE, the USM Training Committee came together last year in partnership with GuidanceResources® Online to provide all USM employees at no cost health education workshops to address the physical, emotional, and mental health challenges we all face today. This year the committee met and discussed managing stress and anxiety as the most important topics for their employees. So they got together with GuidanceResources® Online to put together the following line-up of workshops for this year’s National Health Education Week:
