There will be no OHPE Bulletin next Friday due to the Monday holiday.

In today's feature, Brian Cugleman looks to the future and the potential of behaviour change interventions that leverage new interactive technologies.

Every few years we do a short survey of our subscribers to help assess how we're doing and how we might improve OHPE. That time has come again. If you'd oblige us by spending a very few minutes (our last survey took people an average of 2 minutes 14 seconds) answering our survey we'd really appreciate it. Here's the link: It's totally anonymous and, in case it makes a difference to your legal department, the survey servers are in Canada.

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
