A public health care administrator (PHCA) is an individual who specializes in disease control/prevention and work towards promoting health care initiatives. PHCA's build community wide awareness of new and existing diseases, outbreaks of new diseases and how to identify symptoms and preventative measures to protect oneself should the worst case scenario occur. PHCA's "try to improve the welfare of the community at large and run the organizations that disseminate information about health. The majority are employed by governmental health agencies, while others work for not-for-profit organizations and educational institutions. They assess community health issues and educate members about the prevention or alleviation of health problems. The public health administrator executes community outreach programs to make people aware of dangers such as lead poisoning and to address chronic problems afflicting the community, like sexually transmitted diseases."(Princeton Review, 2010).

In my opinion, I do not think citizens would know exactly what I did as a PHCA unless they were in the same field as well. They would know that I am in the health care profession and might question whether I was a nurse or a nurse practitioner. The general public would not be aware of the detail involved within my profession. For instance, when I began studying for my Doctorate degree, people did not know what a Doctorate was. They automatically assumed that I was working towards obtaining an M.D. so their initial reaction was that I was going to be a physician. So in order for me to alleviate the assumption that I was going to be a physician I told others who were not among the Doctoral community that I was working towards my Ph.D. Likewise with the Public Health Care Administration, the general public might assume that a PHCA was a nurse or an administrator of health care without knowing the job description.
