I'm Megan Muehlenbruch and health education is my passion. I love bringing information and knowledge to others that will improve their health and well-being. I love serving as a resource person for those seeking knowledge. This is my platform for sharing and organizing what I find interesting, powerful and important. Whether you call it public health, health education, health promotion or something in between, it's important and it impacts us all.
