Each year the OHPE invites organizations and individuals working in health promotion to reflect on the past 12 months and make some predictions about the implications for the coming year. This week, we have the first part of our reflections piece and the final OHPE feature article for 2009. Our final newsletter of the year will be next Friday, December 18, and we will return on January 8 -- 2010! -- with our usual news, jobs, and announcements, as well as the second half of this annual collection of community reflections.

We always 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
