This collaboration is a result of the combination of two initiatives. Alison was working on updating OPC's 1994 publication on health promotion training and OHPE Bulletins on the topic from 1998; Kevin was gathering information on the same subject for Health Promotion Ontario to post on the careers section of the ALPHA web site.
