In this week's issue, we have our annual collection of health promoters' reflections on milestones and events of significance over the past year and insights on what might lie ahead in the coming 12 months. Due to the number and substance of the submissions we received we will run our reflections in two parts.

The OHPE newsletter will return on January 2, 2015.

Best wishes for the holiday season from the Editorial and Management Team.
