National Health Education Week


Since 1995, National Health Education Week (NHEW) has been celebrated during the third week of October. This celebration focuses national attention on a major public health issue and promotes consumers’ understanding of the role of health education in promoting the public’s health.

Please visit the SOPHE website for updates on NHEW 2011, which is set for October 16-22. The theme for this year is “Health Literacy: Gateway to Improving the Public’s Health.”


Below are some photos of our 2011 National Health Education Week efforts.

Vice President Raymond Kohl spoke before the Los Angeles Board of Education on October 11, 2011 and then witnessed the Board passing the CASHE-SOPHE National Health Education Week Resolution.
