Welcome to the Kleist Health Education Center
The Kleist Health Education Center, part of the College of Health Professions and Social Work, located at the entrance of Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, Florida is an educational not-for-profit organization devoted to endorsing healthy lifestyles. By teaching and promoting positive health choices, the Kleist Health Education Center strives to prevent health problems and illnesses before they begin.
The health education center is the only one of its kind in the state of Florida, providing a unique health education learning experience for children and adults within the Southwest Florida community. Highly skilled instructors bring three teaching theaters to life using dynamic models, exciting displays, and various multimedia presentations. The staff of the Kleist Health Education Center takes great pride in creating a positive, rich student-centered learning environment that is well grounded in didactic knowledge coupled with strong teaching strategies.
Our health education center will continue to support and provide valuable resources to our surrounding Southwest community. I invite you to explore our interactive website further to learn more about who we are and the programs we can offer to you, your school groups, or adult community.
