Eta Sigma Gamma


What is Eta Sigma Gamma (ESG)?

History

ESG is the national professional health education honorary founded on the campus of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, on August 14, 1967. The Alpha Lambda Chapter at the University of Florida was founded in 1978 under the leadership of Dr. Barbara Rienzo.  Our local chapter enhances the professional development of students while upholding the ideals of teaching, service, and research both individually and collectively.

Benefits of Membership

ESG provides unique professional and leadership opportunities for Health Education and Behavior majors.  Students have the opportunity to gain experience as a health educator during their studies, while giving back to the campus and Gainesville communities.  ESG members are afforded the opportunity to gain experience in health education/health promotion while developing connections and networking skills that will prepare them for future careers in the health field.

The Alpha Lambda chapter collectively earned more than 1300 hours of service through health education/health promotion events and activities with the UF and Gainesville communities on several topics: sexual health, HIV/AIDS prevention, nutrition and fitness, body image, sleep, safety, and many more.
