Why do health educators need insurance?

Your focus is on mental health and wellness. However, you also need to protect your business from risks like fires and claims that your advice caused harm. Health educator malpractice insurance and other policies are a crucial part of risk management. They can help pay for property repairs, medical bills, and legal costs if a client sues your business.
