Associate Director Dr. Sue Flocke's Paper Selected for "Best of Health Promotion Practice"
Congratulations to Associate Director Sue Flocke, PhD, co-author on the paper "Primary Care Resident Training for Obesity, Nutrition and Physical Activity Counseling: A Mixed Methods Study," is one of four papers selected in the inaugural collection "The Best of Health Promotion Practice."
This new annual recognition was established to elevate and celebrate particularly outstanding contributions to the Journal in a given volume year. Along with the longstanding Sara Mazelis Paper of the Year Award, Dr. Flocke's paper was one of four selected by the editorial leadership that together, " exemplify the power of health promotion scholarship" published in the journal in 2017. 

Comments from Health Promotion Practice Editor-in-Chief Dr. Kathleen Roe read, in part: "In addition to its excellent scholarship and contributions to the literature on critical themes of physician education, health counseling, and the related topics of nutrition, obesity, and physical activity, the editorial group particularly noted the way in which you tackle complex questions of role responsibility, cultural stigma, and unintended consequences of incomplete training, while suggesting an alternative that would “increase resident preparedness and ultimately the routine practice of obesity, nutrition, and physical activity counseling in ambulatory primary care” (679). Your paper exemplifies the best of academic scholarship, the insights of mixed methods research, and writing that is accessible, stimulating, and useful to practitioners."

Along with the other papers in the Best of HPP 2017 Collection, "Primary Care Resident Training for Obesity, Nutrition and Physical Activity Counseling: A Mixed Methods Study" will be available through Open Access from August 1-September 30, 2018, at the Health Promotion Practice website.
