Health Education & Behavior (formerly Health Education Quarterly), is one of the most frequently cited journals in the field. National SOPHE members receive online and hard copies of the journal as a standard membership benefit. HE&B explores social and behavioral change as they affect health status and quality of life. It also examines the processes of planning, implementing, managing, and assessing health education and social-behavioral interventions. The journal provides empirical research, case studies, program evaluations, literature reviews, and discussions of theories of health behavior and health status, as well as strategies to improve social and behavioral health. The regular feature, Perspectives, offers thoughtful insights into complex subjects. An annual subscription to HE&B is a standard benefit to all SOPHE members.
