Am J Health Promot 2020 May 26:890117120914227. Epub 2020 May 26.

Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Cambridge, MA, USA.

There is clear evidence that the prevalence of negative media reporting has increased substantially over the past years.

Social Capital in the Response to COVID-19.

Am J Health Promot 2020 May 12:890117120924531. Epub 2020 May 12.

Save the Children, Washington, DC, USA.

Social capital provides a number of benefits during crisis scenarios, and high social capital communities respond more efficaciously than those with low social capital. With this in mind, we argue that the response to and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic may be hampered in many American communities by deficiencies or disruptions in social capital brought about by physical distancing. Drawing on evidence from past crises, we recommend individuals, communities, and government institutions work to strengthen and expand social networks. Read More

Genetic Exceptionalism and Precision Health Promotion.

Authors:
Paul E Terry

Am J Health Promot 2020 Mar 17:890117120908806. Epub 2020 Mar 17.

Editor in Chief, The American Journal of Health Promotion, Senior Fellow, The Health Enhancement Research Organization (HERO).

Are social determinants of health overrated? Is parenting overrated? Will the genetics revolution have the same influence on health behavior as powerful determinants such as culture or the environment? In this editorial, I posit that we will learn that genetic testing will have far greater benefits, and fewer harms, when done in conjunction with well-designed health education and lived experiences. I define precision health promotion as the personalized design of lived experiences that foster improved health and well-being for individuals within the context of their organizations, families, and communities. With the need for education and support to augment genetics information will come the need for unequivocal answers about who should know, and who has no business knowing, about your DNA test results.

Adjudicating Traditional Wellness.

Authors:
Paul E Terry

Am J Health Promot 2020 05 13;34(4):344-348. Epub 2020 Mar 13.

Editor in Chief, American Journal of Health Promotion Senior Fellow, The Health Enhancement Research Organization (HERO).

There is no consensus definition for "traditional wellness" but in worksite health promotion, it usually means the wellness program is a health assessment and/or health screening offering followed by some educational programs, usually in the physical health domain. Using the term traditional wellness may belie an unawareness about or lack of appreciation for the quality improvement principles that are as applicable to the health of a profession as they are to the growth of an organization. This editorial examines how the use of the term traditional wellness is a reflection on our professional zeitgeist. Read More
