Abstract: This article highlights three noteworthy distance education program approaches to the delivery of health education courses. Insights into The University of Alabama Masters in Health Studies, now in its second decade delivering a complete degree program via distance technologies, will be shared as well as Texas A&M University's efforts at both graduate and undergraduate health education distance offerings, and lastly, the evolution of the Health Education and Promotion Network (HEPNetwork), the first profession wide opportunity for health educators to gain educational credit by distance. Each program will be discussed, followed by a thoughtful discourse on the challenges each program faced.
