In recent years, public, professional, governmental, and medical groups have increasingly come to recognize the need for more health and wellness promotion initiatives, as the majority of adults do not meet the minimum recommendations to eat healthfully, exercise more, and make behavioral changes that can reduce disease and prolong their lives. With the focus of healthcare shifting toward preventive care and education, the demand for qualified health educators is projected to rise 21% by 2020.* Now is the time for students to gain the knowledge, skills, and credentials needed to plan, implement, and evaluate prevention programs and services. With an online PhD in Health Education and Promotion degree, students can help groups and individuals lead healthier lifestyles or conduct research in an area that will help make the world a healthier place.

As one of a small number of online doctoral programs that is fully dedicated to this topic, Walden’s health education and promotion degree program explores both individual and population health, focusing on health behavior theory and techniques for changing behaviors. Using the latest technology, students will review case studies that touch on current trends and research and explore best practices from a global perspective.

The PhD in Health Education and Promotion has been designed to reflect the Eight Areas of Responsibility for Health Educators outlined by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC) and to prepare students to sit for the national Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) and Master Certified Health Education Specialist (MCHES) exams. Walden enrollment specialists can provide information relating to national certification exams; however, it remains the individual’s responsibility to understand, evaluate, and comply with all requirements relating to national certification exams for the state in which he or she resides. Additionally, prospective students are advised if they choose to relocate to carefully review, evaluate, and understand the requirements of the applicable licensure board in the state in which they intend to relocate. Walden makes no representations or guarantee that completion of Walden coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain national certification. For more information about the CHES and MCHES exams, students should visit .

At the completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Evaluate the factors that impact individual and population health.
  • Synthesize assessment results to identify and prioritize health problems.
  • Engage in collaborative planning of health interventions.
  • Apply knowledge that results in successful implementation and monitoring of health promotion and disease prevention interventions.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of health promotion and disease prevention interventions.
  • Conduct original health education-related research.
  • Demonstrate ethical behavior as a health education scholar-practitioner.
  • Facilitate efforts among stakeholders to achieve common goals related to individual and community health.
  • Apply health education principles, theories, and models to create professional communication and establish positive public relations.
  • Use evidence-based research to advocate for policies and programs that promote positive social change related to the health of individuals and communities.
  • Track 1 (prior MS in Health Education and Promotion degree, Master of Public Health (MPH), or related health education and promotion degree)

Track 2 (master’s degree in an academic discipline other than the health education or public health field)

Specialization in behavioral health, specialization in global health, specialization in management and leadership, specialization in online teaching in higher education, specialization in population health, specialization in research.

Walden awards the Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree to recognize PhD students for academic achievement leading up to their dissertation. With an MPhil, students will be able to demonstrate to employers and others that they have an advanced knowledge base in their field of study as well as proficiency in research design and evaluation.

  • All required PhD core courses (or KAMs)
  • All required PhD specialization courses (or KAMs)
  • All required doctoral research and advanced research courses
  • Program prospectus development course
  • Residencies 1, 2, and 3
  • A minimum 3.0 GPA is mandatory.
  • The MPhil requires a minimum of 45 quarter credits. Maximum transfer of credit varies by program but is not to exceed 50% of the overall, or embedded, program requirements. Students who previously completed a master's degree with Walden in the same discipline area are not eligible for an MPhil.

Students who start or readmit to doctoral programs at Walden University in the university catalog for academic year 2017 or later will complete the university’s required  doctoral writing assessment . Designed to evaluate incoming doctoral students’ writing skills, this assessment aims to help prepare incoming doctoral students to meet the university’s expectations for writing at the doctoral level.

Students have up to 8 years to complete their doctoral degree requirements (see  Enrollment Requirements  in the student handbook). Students may petition to extend the 8-year maximum time frame, but an extension is not guaranteed.

Getting the Full Dissertation

Try first to look in Google Scholar and Dissertations & Theses Global Full Text  (above) for digital fulltext of a dissertation. Many universities are now posting dissertations in repositories (like Digital Commons). Google Scholar includes Digital Commons and other repositories in its search. If that doesn't work, you might also try a regular Google search.

An effective way to search for the dissertation in Google Scholar or Google is to place the title in quotes, followed by the author last name. Example search: "Self-Efficacy and Instructional Leadership" Helber

For older dissertations, you may need to try to interlibrary loan the dissertation. You can get an idea of whether the dissertation is at a library by searching OCLC WorldCat . Or go to the web site for the library of the university where the author did the dissertation. Unfortunately, sometimes dissertations are not available via interlibrary loan. As a last resort, you may be able to purchase dissertations from ProQuest--see DissertationExpress  link below.

Environmental Factor

Your online source for niehs news, how can you reduce health effects of endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

Nearly 300 researchers, clinicians, and community members gathered to share research, steps people can take to reduce exposure to EDCs.

By Caroline Stetler

National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientists recently gathered with researchers, clinicians, and community members to discuss emerging research focused on interventions — simple, accessible, and safe steps people can take — to mitigate exposures to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs). These chemicals interfere with hormones produced by the endocrine system, which controls metabolism, heart rate, growth, reproduction, and other biological processes.

During the two-day workshop held June 10-11 in Bethesda, Maryland, panelists called for more solutions-focused research, clinical trials to assess benefits of holistic interventions such as diet and physical activity, and health care provider education.

“We’ve discovered many different chemicals that are used widely — such as PFAS, pesticides like DDT, and plastic-related chemicals like phthalates and bisphenol A [BPA] — can all impact health and the health of future generations through endocrine-disrupting effects,” said NIEHS Director Rick Woychik, Ph.D. , during the workshop jointly organized by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) and NIEHS.

Sekai Chideya, M.D.

“Every day there seems to be a new headline about EDCs and forever chemicals having an effect on our health and well-being, and possible links between EDCs and obesity, cancers, ADHD, immune dysfunction, or fertility problems,” said Sekai Chideya, M.D. , program director at NCCIH. “We must find ways to clear EDCs from our bodies, block their effects, or build defenses and resiliency because trying to avoid these chemicals is unlikely to prevent the health effects EDCs may cause.”

The goal, according to Chideya: Help the public feel empowered to do something about EDC exposure and risk reduction, as well as inspire researchers and the public to collaborate with NIH so we all stay healthy and thrive in the face of EDCs.

What are EDCS?

Heather Patisaul

“EDCs are a little bit different than overt poisons in that they perturb our endocrine system,” said Heather Patisaul, Ph.D. , the scientific director for the NIEHS Division of Translational Toxicology. “And there isn’t an organ or cell in your body that the endocrine system doesn’t touch.”

According to Patisaul, the term “endocrine disruption” was coined in 1991, marking the beginning of an era when scientists began further understanding how chemicals can affect our bodies and health. The timing of EDC exposure, particularly during critical windows such as pregnancy and even at low doses, can significantly perturb the endocrine system and other organ systems.

However, regulation of these chemicals has lagged.

“Consumer demand, not a regulatory action, got BPA out of baby bottles and flame retardants out of furniture,” Patisaul explained. “There’s a lot of power when groups come together and ask for change.”

Diet, probiotics, supplements, and sweating chemicals out

NCCIH Director Helene M. Langevin, M.D. , applauded efforts to figure out how to mitigate the effects of these toxic chemicals, especially through lifestyle changes, such as nutrition education, physical activity, and stress management, that have wide- ranging benefits.

Key takeaways from research presented during the workshop include the following.

  • Eating a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, as well as low in sugar, along with physical activity and sufficient sleep, is known to improve overall health. Emerging research shows the benefits may also extend to a person’s ability to reduce EDCs’ effects.
  • Consuming higher quality diets and decreasing exposures to nonpersistent EDCs improved pregnancy and maternal metabolic health outcomes, according to studies conducted by Rita Strakovsky, Ph.D., R.D., Michigan State University.
  • Karen Peterson, D.Sc., University of Michigan, and a longtime NIEHS grantee, shared research showing lower intake of ultra-processed foods may reduce EDC exposure levels and cardiometabolic risk among women in midlife.
  • Eating probiotic yogurt or fermented foods may help boost gut microbes that act as a barrier of protection against heavy metals that are EDCs, such as arsenic, mercury, and lead, according to studies conducted by Jordan Bisanz, Ph.D., Penn State.
  • Regularly induced sweating can reduce the levels of EDCs, said Detlef Birkholz, Ph.D., an analytical consultant. His team found levels of BPA that were consistently higher in a person’s sweat than urine, suggesting sweat may be a better indicator of toxicant levels and more accurately capture the true burden of some EDCs.
  • Emerging research indicates supplements such as fish oil, folate, and probiotics to support the gut microbiome, and stress management using mindfulness techniques, could provide benefits.
  • If possible, avoid and reduce exposure to consumer products containing EDCs (see sidebar).

The human cost of EDCs

Hormis Bedolla

Community members representing firefighters, farmworkers, and veterans, who have been disproportionately exposed to EDCs in the workplace, as well as those affected by polluted drinking water, shared their perspectives during the workshop.

Hormis Bedolla, of the Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, shared photos of injuries she sustained after applying pesticides at an apple orchard. She also shared photos of her children. All were born premature and underweight, including one child who underwent heart surgery and another who was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for two months, which she attributes to her decades-long work using pesticides that contain EDCs.

“As farmworkers, we are the ones feeding the nation, but we are not being seen or recognized,” said Amy Tamayo, J.D., Bedolla’s colleague who acted as her interpreter. “We are continuously facing the horrible consequences of pesticide exposures.”

Calls for health care provider education

“Our institute has been studying endocrine disruptors for a long time,” said Thad Schug, Ph.D. , program director at NIEHS. “We know the many ways the chemicals can harm our bodies, we know we should reduce exposure, and we know many of the bad chemicals, but how to proceed from here is the big question.”

Thad Schug, Ph.D.

Sheela Sathyanarayana, M.D., University of Washington, called on workshop participants to write an open letter to the Association of American Medical Colleges advocating for incorporating environmental components into the curriculum for all medical students. The goal would be to educate health care practitioners on EDC exposures and impacts on human health.

“Hearing from the impacted communities was very powerful and underscored the critical importance of interfacing with and talking to them even more,” Patisaul said. “It is their needs and priorities, after all, that we are tasked with addressing. NIH needs to do a better job of learning from them, responding to their needs, and prioritizing their health.”

Patisaul said she is hopeful the engaging and stimulating meeting leads to new partnerships and initiatives.

“We have reason to hope that so much of the outstanding research discussed in the last two days is pointing us in the right direction,” said Langevin.

Steps you can take

Carmen Messerlian, Ph.D., Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and an NIEHS grantee, shared a few concrete and sustainable steps people can take today to reduce their exposure to EDCs.

  • Mop floors to reduce dust, chemicals picked up in the dust.
  • Reduce screen time.
  • Reduce the number of personal care products you put on your body (e.g., go from 10 to seven.)
  • Reduce the number of times you eat takeout per week.
  • Invest in a water filtration system, whether low-cost, over-the-counter water filters, or a reverse osmosis system.

Moving the needle down to create a new habit is the key, says Messerlian. 

“What couples do today in the preconception window of vulnerability [to decrease exposures and enhance health and nutrition] affects their grandchild’s health and lifespan and helps us achieve generational health,” she said.

The Unique Burial of a Child of Early Scythian Time at the Cemetery of Saryg-Bulun (Tuva)

<< Previous page

Pages:  379-406

In 1988, the Tuvan Archaeological Expedition (led by M. E. Kilunovskaya and V. A. Semenov) discovered a unique burial of the early Iron Age at Saryg-Bulun in Central Tuva. There are two burial mounds of the Aldy-Bel culture dated by 7th century BC. Within the barrows, which adjoined one another, forming a figure-of-eight, there were discovered 7 burials, from which a representative collection of artifacts was recovered. Burial 5 was the most unique, it was found in a coffin made of a larch trunk, with a tightly closed lid. Due to the preservative properties of larch and lack of air access, the coffin contained a well-preserved mummy of a child with an accompanying set of grave goods. The interred individual retained the skin on his face and had a leather headdress painted with red pigment and a coat, sewn from jerboa fur. The coat was belted with a leather belt with bronze ornaments and buckles. Besides that, a leather quiver with arrows with the shafts decorated with painted ornaments, fully preserved battle pick and a bow were buried in the coffin. Unexpectedly, the full-genomic analysis, showed that the individual was female. This fact opens a new aspect in the study of the social history of the Scythian society and perhaps brings us back to the myth of the Amazons, discussed by Herodotus. Of course, this discovery is unique in its preservation for the Scythian culture of Tuva and requires careful study and conservation.
