HEB

 

The Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) has announced the publication of Health Education & Behavior (HE&B) supplement devoted to the latest research and practice to promote healthy aging. All articles in the HE&B supplemental issue are provided through open access.

Articles in the supplement include:

·  Developing a Framework and Priorities to Promote Mobility Among Older Adults
“Mobility, broadly defined as movement in all of its forms from ambulation to transportation, is critical to supporting optimal aging. This article describes two projects to develop a framework and a set of priority actions designed to promote mobility among community-dwelling older adults.”

·  Preparing the Workforce for Healthy Aging Programs. The Skills for Healthy Aging Resources and Programs (SHARP) Model.
“Current public health and aging service agency personnel have little training in gerontology, and virtually no training in evidence-based health promotion and disease management programs for older adults. These programs are rapidly becoming the future of our community-based long-term care support system. The purpose of this project was to develop and test a model community college career technical education program..”

The UT Library subscribes to Health Education & Behavior. Looking for additional articles in this journal or other public health articles? Great suggestions at the Health Sciences Program Library Guide.  Also, do not forget to contact a Mulford Reference Librarian with your information and research needs!
