Health Education Needs of Alcoholism Services
When New York University’s Department of Health Education was funded in 1975 by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism to develop an Alcohol Studies specialization as part of our Community Health Education masters program, we had no certain knowledge about the job market for the people we would be preparing. We believed that there was an immense prevention job to be done in the alcoholism field, and we had a pretty good idea that trained health educators were a relatively scarce resource in that field. Beyond that, we felt that our Project had a sound theoretical base, namely that people prepared at the graduate level in community health education and with knowledge of alcohol problems would have a good deal to offer the alcoholism field.
