Our Campus, Our Health: A Model for Undergraduate Health Education Research Engagement
Merten, Julie Williams; Johnson, Dana
Journal of Health Education Teaching, v5 n1 p14-19 2014
Research experience prepares undergraduate students for graduate school, a competitive job market, and their future as the next generation of leaders in public health education. This article describes a model, Our Campus, Our Health, to engage undergraduate students in the delivery of a college health behavior assessment. Through this project, students oversee data analysis, disseminate the findings to stakeholders, and use health communication strategies to promote health behavior change. The project showcases health education as an exciting career choice, provides a valuable resource for the entire campus, and student researchers gain hands-on experience in Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) responsibilities.
