To begin, a quick reminder: our deadline for submissions to OHPE is Thursday at noon for the following day's issue. For the next several weeks, the OHPE is being produced from the UK and, due to the time zone differences, your editor will have much less leeway with this cut-off point.



In this week's issue, we have a feature from Jason Chapman, Tara Maher, and Steven Savvaidis. In their introduction they write, "This article will describe the key steps that are involved in conducting effective media advocacy campaigns and the relationship to other important activities such as coalition building and strategic planning."



We always welcome your feedback on all of 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 http://www.ohpe.ca/submission-guide and write to editor@ohpe.ca.
