As most health promotion practitioners know, tobacco use is the largest preventable cause of death and disease in Ontario. This week's feature celebrates the first anniversary of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act.

From previous week's features, we would like to note the following corrections:

* Ontario Injury Prevention Conference 2007, the feature for our May 25 issue (, was authored by Pat Cliche, Northern Injury Prevention Practitioners Coordinator, OIPRC, and Kristina Baraskewich, Firedog Communications.

* Our May 4 feature article, Community Site Visits--An Innovative Conference Structure to Bring Research to Life ( incorrectly switched around one of the key organizations name. It should be Community-Campus Partnerships for Health, and our apologies for the confusion!

As always, send us your news or comments. We welcome your feedback on our feature articles-including topics you'd like to see--news about old colleagues and new colleagues, and comments on our newsletter and searchable database of health promotion information. Read our complete submission guidelines at and write to [email protected].
