My name is Eimear Glendon. I work as a Health Promotion Officer in the Foróige Drum Youth Centre in Kilkenny. I studied for a BSc Health Science & Physiology and a BSc Public Health & Health Promotion in the Institute of Technology Sligo over a period of four years. Helping people whenever I can is very important to me!
What is Health Promotion?
Health Promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over and to improve their health. Health promotion recognises that everything that affects a person’s everyday living has an impact on their health and well-being; this in turn affects people’s quality of life.
