A parliamentary spotlight on prevention

    Research output: Contribution to journalLetterOther


    Introduction: It can be a disconcerting experience as a health promoter when the question comes up So ....what do you do? . In reply you might say: I manage health promotion projects , or I am a health promotion researcher . The smile that you receive indicates that your interlocutor likes the sentiment of what you are saying, but the quizzical furrow on her or his brow suggests a lack of certainty about what it is you mean. If you are in the mood you might go on to discuss what health promotion is all about, but the experience serves as a reminder that it is not a widely recognised field of work.
