The Health Honors Society (HHS) is a student group designed to engage and support high performing students in conducting and disseminating scientific research; planning, implementing and evaluating health programs and resources; promoting professional standards and ethics; networking among health educators and related professionals; and advocating for health equity. The Society recognizes academic achievement and provides hands-on experiences for members to meet the standards, ideals, competencies and ethics of professionally prepared individuals in Health Education and Promotion. Students majoring in Public Health and related fields can become affiliate members, allowing them to engage in all local activities. Students majoring in Community Health or being CHES eligible* can become full members and be recognized by the National Honorary and gain the associated benefits of national membership.
*CHES eligibility requires 25 credit hours in competency related coursework in health. The HHS advisors can review your transcript to see if you are eligible.
