Wombs and Whippersnappers: Reflections on Health Education Research and Opportunities for the Future
Gielen, Andrea Carlson
Health Education & Behavior, v43 n6 p613-620 Dec 2016
My talk will describe two public health problems facing women and children that were the focus of the work my colleagues and I did over my years as a health behavior change researcher. I start by addressing why a focus on women and children is important from a public health perspective and then provide two mini case studies: (1) identifying needs and interventions for women living with HIV and intimate partner violence and (2) disseminating proven interventions to reduce unintentional injuries in children. The conclusions present thoughts on the contributions of health education to these public health concerns and opportunities for the future.
