HEB Theme Issue on Equity and Justice

Please consider submitting an abstract to develop a manuscript for the special theme issue on Collaboration for Equity and Justice. I am working with several noted scholar/practitioners on a special issue of Health Education and Behavior. This is based on the publication effort led by Tom Wolff and a team of nearly 20 leaders to frame the values and approaches to Collaboration for Equity and Justice that promotes a values-based approach to the work. We are looking for examples, case studies, data-based investigations and other manuscripts that will expand our understanding of approaches that contribute most to community engagement and transformation in this area.

This effort is being supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Health Equity Team, along with leadership in the Society for Public Health Education. Our colleagues at RWJF are keen to support, and to learn more about, efforts to promote health equity among marginalized populations. Papers submitted for publication may significantly inform their investments and efforts to support communities more broadly. The call for papers can be downloaded at https://communityleadershipsquared.box.com/s/wbn39kzprhraz6k2cbsaa3rmkj8gchk2.

Although the original deadline for abstracts was Dec 15, we are extending this to January 1, in the hopes of getting as many manuscripts as possible. We especially hope to get more manuscript proposals that include evidence of success, along with theoretical and conceptual analyses of those efforts.

HEB is considered to be one of the pre-eminent journals in public health, and the flagship journal of the Society for Public Health Education. Please email me with questions and ideas, or contact Dr Michelle Kegler directly. Please send abstracts to Dr Kegler, following the instructions on the attached call for papers.

Please share this call for papers with others who may be interested in submitting an abstract and manuscript.
