"Intern/Work While In School!"
Program Coordinator, Non-Profit Organization:
Health Education is a great field, but it really helps to have experience even for entry level jobs. Work in the field while in school, even if unpaid (volunteer or internship). Also, if you want to work in a hospital or government agency then work toward your CHES while in school and take the test, etc.
