About   journal cover

The American Journal of Health Education (AJHE) is filled with research findings, community learning strategies, and recent health promotion trends. Many articles are designed as self-study courses, with continuing education questions and forms included. Its mission is to advance the profession by serving health educators and others who strive to promote the health of all people through education and other systematic strategies.

Mission

The mission of the American Journal of Health Education is to publish research manuscripts that focus on Health Education and Health Promotion interventions designed to prevent or delay the onset of the major chronic diseases and illnesses that impact populations of interest today (CVD, cancer, diabetes, COPD, cirrhosis, Alzheimer's/dementia, etc.). In addition, AJHE is actively seeking manuscripts that inform the discussion on the role of lifestyle behaviors (nutrition/diet, physical activity, weight management, tobacco use prevention, stress control, self-management of chronic disease, emotional and social functioning, alcohol and other drugs abuse, etc.). AJHE is particularly interested in manuscripts that focus on interventions related to the primary prevention of chronic disease from a social ecological perspective that conceptualized the role of individual, interpersonal, institutional, community and policy factors on lifestyle behaviors.
