For the last feature of the OHPE this year, which will appear on December 9, we will be running a year in review and a looking forward piece. We have done this in previous years and have found the collected reflections serve, in part, as an interesting point of reference and context as one year winds down and planning begins for the next. Organizations are invited to provide a contribution that addresses the following:

* What were the most significant developments over the past year from your organization's perspective in health promotion / public health in Ontario, across the country or internationally?

* What implications will these developments have over the next year?

Your contribution could deal with any aspect of health promotion or public health, e.g., programs, policies, human resource, economic issues etc. and need only be a few paragraphs.To submit a contribution please contact the OHPE features editor at

We always welcome your feedback on all of 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
