Dealing with Unethical Behavior in Health Education and Promotion

Dealing with Unethical Behavior in Health Education and Promotion

Several professions (e.g., medicine and law) have procedures for dealing with members’ unethical behavior. In fact, if the offense is extreme enough a lawyer can be disbarred and a physician can lose his or her license to practice medicine. Do you think the profession of health education/promotion should create a similar process to review unethical behavior and if necessary take away the certification of certified health education specialists, etc. (CHES, MCHES, CPH)? What might that process look like to you (go beyond what is given in your text)? Defend your response. 2-4 pages. All written submissions should reflect professionalism in grammar, spelling, writing style/format (one-inch margins, double spaced, typed in 12-point Times New Roman font), include APA 6th citations when appropriate, an appropriate title page, and be uploaded as .doc or .docx documents.
