Meet Sarah Hague, lecturer in the Department of Public Health Sciences.
Hague grew up in Detroit, Michigan. She received a master’s degree in health education from Wayne State University and a bachelor’s degree in health and social awareness from the University of Toledo.
With over a decade of experience, Hague has worked in higher education as a lecturer and held various roles as a health advisor and educator in the public and private health sectors before joining Clemson University and the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences in 2022.
Most recently, she taught mental health prevention strategies to underserved children in Indianapolis public schools and health education classes at Indiana University.
Q: What is your role in the Clemson Department of Public Health Sciences?
I am a lecturer, teaching classes on determinants of health behavior (HLTH 2400), human health and disease (HLTH 2980) and community health (HLTH 4800). I am also an advisor for Eta Sigma Gamma, a national professional health education honorary.
Q: What are your research interests?
I love community health initiatives. I enjoy watching theory come to life and educating students and community members in ways that will benefit them long term.
Recently, students in my community health class conducted community health assessments and planned and implemented health programs for Blue Ridge Community Center in Seneca, South Carolina. They gained hands-on experience working with community members, participating in an established food share program, leading programs for adults and youth and evaluating program effectiveness.
Q: Where do you find inspiration?
So many things inspire me, but if I had to list three, I would choose: my faith, students and career. My faith is a driving force in my life. My students keep me on my toes and my career is a dream come true that motivates me to work harder each day.
Q: What is your proudest accomplishment?
My proudest accomplishments are my children: Raymond, Paige and Liamm. I feel like I was born to be a mom, but my career is a significant part of who I am, too. I am very blessed to have both — they are my greatest accomplishments.
Q: What is your favorite thing about Clemson?
My favorite thing about Clemson is the tradition, school spirit and southern culture! It feels like a family!
