The mission of the American Journal of Health Education (AJHE) is to publish research manuscripts that focus on Health Education and Health Promotion interventions designed to prevent or delay the onset of the major chronic diseases and illnesses that impact populations of interest today (CVD, cancer, diabetes, COPD, cirrhosis, Alzheimer’s/dementia, etc.). In addition, AJHE is actively seeking manuscripts that inform the discussion on the role of lifestyle behaviors (nutrition/diet, physical activity, weight management, tobacco use prevention, stress control, self-management of chronic disease, emotional and social functioning, alcohol and other drugs abuse, etc.) in chronic disease management. Manuscript reporting on research conducted in community, medical care, worksite and school/university settings are acceptable. AJHE is particularly interested in manuscripts that focus on interventions related to the primary prevention of chronic disease from a social ecological perspective that conceptualized the role of individual, interpersonal, institutional, community and policy factors on lifestyle behaviors.
