Elena M. Sliepcevich Centre for Health Education Studies

The Elena M. Sliepcevich Centre for Health Education Studies (EMS CHES) primarily is a tribute to the spirit and work of its namesake. The Centre also honors a select group of influential Health Educators. Principally created to recognize those who helped establish the profession, the Centre is a focal point of health education historical research and other scholarly work.

The Centre encompasses as its foundation Dr. Sliepcevich’s life work featuring the landmark School Health Education Study, and her personal memorabilia. Five decades of materials related to other Health Education Key Leaders are incorporated.

Access to the Centre is widely available through this site including materials in the entire Sliepcevich Collection as well as those associated with other prominent Health Educators. Historical research, professional, and health-related resources also can be found.

As a special feature, visitors to the site are invited to contribute to an archive/collection of personal and professional stories being compiled as a resource of the Centre.
