Abstract

The workplace is a relatively recent and an increasingly recognized setting for health education. In this article, philosophical and economic reasons for this movement of health education in the workplace are cited. Currently the workplace is one of the fastest growing markets for health education. In most institutions, preparing health educators for the workplace has not been adequately addressed. Consequently, an experimental course entitled "Health Promotion and Educational Strategies for the Workplace" was developed and taught at The Ohio State University in the summer of 1981. Besides an extensive reading list and lively class discussions, the course was team-taught primarily by a health education faculty member and a health insurance program manager/health educator.
