Health education is definitely an occupation whose time has come. More than ever, healthcare reform is pushing for preventive services and community health approaches to solving health care problems; thus, making room for community health workers and health education specialists to shine. Laws are starting to accommodate for direct reimbursement of services provided by these individuals provided a referral was made. We need more advocacy in this department. Health educators need to begin to hone their skills and seize opportunities that now exist and the ones that are yet to come.
