The intersection of e-patients and providers— Where’s the sweet spot?
Wednesday, March 19, from 1 PM to 2 PM ET
Healthcare providers are no longer the sole gatekeepers of health information. The e-patient has emerged—individuals empowered by technology to collaborate and be actively involved in their health. Through the lens of diabetes, our free webinar will discuss this paradigm shift, as well as provide resources and tools for engaging with e-patients.
Hear from a diabetes online community advocate about the benefits e-patients experience when they connect with each other
See examples of different tools used for patient engagement (such as social media platforms and health information technology)
Learn approaches to improve health outcomes for people with chronic conditions
Plus: Get a certificate of completion and earn free CEUs (for RD* and CHES)

Breathe California-Community Transformation Grant
Breathe California is proud to announce its participation in the Community Transformation Grant. Funded by the US Centers for Disease Control in partnership with the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, the grant will underwrite "South County: United for Health," a collaborative effort to improve the health of low-income and Latino residents in the southern part of Santa Clara County.
Program examples include reducing teen smoking, creating safe parks to promote physical activity and reduce obesity rates, and boosting social-emotional health resources for students. Breathe California will be handling the teen smoking efforts, establishing anti-tobacco youth groups, educating on the benefits of increased tobacco retail licensing, offering cessation classes specifically designed for teens, providing second-hand smoke resources, and more.
Breathe California is looking for volunteers to help with this outreach. If you live in Gilroy, San Martin, or Morgan Hill, you can help. We will be contacting elected officials, school administrators, tobacco retailers, restauranteurs and apartment building managers, and your voice is important as we try to make this case. Please call 408-998-5865 to find out how.

We need to hear from a wide spectrum of health educators practicing in all settings and regions of the country. Your input is vital in charting the future of the health education profession.
The Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) in conjunction with the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc. (NCHEC) are sponsoring the Health Education Specialist Practice Analysis (HESPA). 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.
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.
In appreciation for the time you dedicated to participate in the survey, NCHEC and SOPHE are offering the following incentives:
Interested individuals will be placed in a random drawing for the chance of winning one of the 20 - $50 Amazon gift certificates available.
All CHES/MCHES certified individuals will be awarded 1.0 Category I Continuing Education Contact Hour (CECH)
Let your voice be heard! Sign up online to participate in the survey today!
