The Health Education Specialist Practice Analysis (HESPA) is being conducted to re-validate the contemporary practice of entry-level and advanced-level health education specialists and to re-define core knowledge and competencies for health education practice. This study is designed to meet recommendations from the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) and to maintain National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) accreditation. Study sponsors are the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc. (NCHEC) and the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE). The results of the study will be used to update the Framework for Health Education Specialists, to ensure that the CHES and MCHES exams reflect the most current and comprehensive state of the profession, and may be used to inform training programs and professional development initiatives.

The sponsors need to hear from a wide spectrum of health educators practicing in all settings and regions of the country. As a member of DHPE, your perspective as someone engaged in this work at the state level is important. Your input will help chart the future of the health education profession. Please participate in the survey!

All CHES/MCHES certified individuals will be awarded 1.0 Category I Continuing Education Contact Hour (CECH)
