Interview a school or community health educator in your city. Ask what his or her philosophy of health education/promotion is. Then ask about the influences that helped the educator form his or her philosophy. Summarize the interview in a onepage paper.
Take a survey of your classmates to assess what predominant health education/promotion philosophy each of them might employ. Compare the results with those from the study by Welle, Russell, and Kittleson (1995) described in this chapter. What were the reasons for any differences? Similarities?
