Striving for Excellence as a Health Care Educator?
HCEA is currently exploring the feasibility of a national certification for health care educators. To that end, we have begun developing a competency framework. Conversations continue with recognized accrediting organizations to establish this national certification program in the coming year. HCEA will post new information as it becomes available.

HCEA Good Read
The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhig is an interesting book that explains why habits exist and how they can be changed. For those working as health educators, this book could really provide insight on behavior change techniques. It highlights why some people and companies struggle to change, despite years of trying, while others seem to remake themselves overnight. The book discusses research from neuroscientists that explore how habits work and where they reside in our brains. For examples, the book highlights how the right habits were crucial to a number of successful people and companies, including the nation's largest hospitals, to see how implementing "keystone habits" can mean the difference between failure and success.
