This week's feature article is from Rob MacDonald, a consultant at The Health Communication Unit. In his introduction he writes that his purpose is to, "briefly profile two rural-based organizations that have a rural health focus: Gateway Rural Health Research Institute and The Ontario Rural Council. The second purpose of this feature is to invite health promoters in rural communities to forward their success stories to us so that we can help facilitate the exchange of knowledge with other health promoters who have an interest in rural Ontario."

We welcome your feedback on our feature articles--including topics you'd like to see--news about old colleagues and new colleagues, and comments on our newsletter and searchable database of health promotion information. Read our complete submission guidelines at and write to
