Eta Sigma Gamma (ESG), the national honorary for health education, was established on the campus of Ball State University in 1967. ESG has a rich history of serving students and the profession through teaching, service, and research and has grown to include over eighty chapters throughout the United States. The Alpha Nu Chapter at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro was recognized May 1, 1978. The primary purpose of ESG is to further the professional competence and dedication of individual members of the health education profession.
