The International Forum for Health Promotion Research

av 14. april 2016 i Conferences med Ingen kommentarer

Dear colleague,

It is a pleasure to invite you to the International Forum for Health Promotion Research in Trondheim, Norway, September 28.-30. 2016

The title of this year’s forum is Next Society – reflecting the need for changes within the health systems around the world. Until now, health-promoting thinking has had little impact on the health system. However, health promotion may be an important part of the solution for these systems, in order to solve the health service challenges they face worldwide.

Knowledge about health promotion in the health services is scarce. Researchers and practitioners therefore need to meet to discuss theories, methods, practice and implementation of health promotion. The International Forum for Health Promotion Research is the place for this.

Visit the conference pages for more details: https://www.ntnu.edu/healthforum/healthforum

See you in Trondheim in late September.

Best regards

Geir Arild Espnes
