Health Education Administration (HEA) is the central health education office for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. We strive to achieve the following Vision and Mission:
Healthy Los Angeles County communities through effective health education practice.
To promote health through effective health education communications, an empowered health education workforce, and successful partnerships.
Our services aim to improve the capacity of the health education workforce to deliver high quality health education services. Among the services we provide is the coordination of the Speakers' Bureau which facilitates the requests for speakers from Department of Public Health staff and community members on several topic areas. HEA also oversees the compilation of the Educational Materials inventory which is a collection of print materials created and/or utilized by programs within Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. The print materials included in the inventory cover a wide range of topics, and are frequently used by health educators and public health nurses in their work with Los Angeles communities.
HEA also offers quarterly Public Health Education Collaborative meetings to link public health practitioners to people and tools that make health education practice easier and more effective throughout Los Angeles County.
