SOPHE journals examine new research & practice solutions

SAGE Publications' publishing partner, The Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) has released special issues of its two journals, Health Promotion Practice (HPP) and Health Education & Behavior (HEB), that feature innovative approaches to eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities. To further advance the dialogue and action on these concerns, SAGE is sponsoring a free webinar series with the journals' editors and authors on July 25 and August 29.

Reflecting the dynamic nexus of health education research and practice, the complementary peer-reviewed publications include writings taken from SOPHE's inaugural summit, Health Disparities and Social Inequities: Framing a Transdisciplinary Research Agenda in Health Education, held last summer.

A central theme among authors writing in HEB (August 2006) is that health disparities research defies any single investigative line of inquiry. Rather, a transdisciplinary approach is required providing the scientific framework for interventions, collaborations, and policies to address the highly complex, interactive factors contributing to health disparities. Likewise, the complementary July 2006 issue of HPP looks at health funding, politics and policy impacting health disparities. Experts working on the front lines discuss ways to improve health literacy and to encourage communities to eliminate health disparities, as well as innovative mentoring programs to encourage a more diverse public health workforce.

"It is critical that we not only create our own research agenda," writes Stephen Gambescia, PhD, SOPHE President, "but also advocate that the health disparities concern receives attention from the funders of research. This funding must include initiatives that go beyond the traditional health services issues to the often-neglected preventive and community health education services."
