The intention of my thesis is not to conduct a critical evaluation of the health educators working in the field, but rather to perform a literature review of their research, carry out my own investigation, and provide discussion on how health information is disseminated to members of society in low-socioeconomic status (SES) and the potential for future programs. I have selected 3 research articles to review, summarize, and provide discussion on. I also prepared a general health survey I planned to administer to participants of the women, infant, and child (WIC) program in Williamson County, TX. However, due to not gaining approval from the WilCo Health Department the survey was not conducted. Therefore, I will just provide the contents of the survey, its purpose, and further discussion.
