SPR Community

Newsletter of the Society for Prevention Research
Spring 2013 , Volume 3, Issue 1

Editor's Welcome

Hanno Petras

Welcome to the third issue of the SPR Community. I am very pleased with this issue since it builds on the themes and success of the past issues. While we have not been able to adhere to a stable submission schedule, which I hope we will be able to iron out in the future, I am sure that you will find the content of interest. As we have done in the past, I have invited two of the founding members of SPR, namely Gene Oetting and Ralph Tarter to reminisce on the past and future of Prevention Science. In addition, many discussions in 2013 were centered on the Affordable Care Act and what it will mean for Prevention. I feel fortunate that Larry Cohen and Rob Waters from the Prevention Institute were able to submit their perspective on this.

As always, we welcome contributions from members who wish to share the highlights of their experiences, anecdotes and memories of the SPR annual meetings and your reflections on SPR’s role in the development of Prevention Science. We will publish them in the Fall/Winter 2013 issue of SPR Community. Please send your contributions to Hanno Petras, PhD, SPR Community Editor at hpetras@jbsinternational.com. Please note that due to space limitations, the Newsletter editor reserves the right to edit copy that is received and to omit submissions that are not directly concerned with SPR annual meeting and activities.

I look forward to hearing from you as well as talking with you at the annual meeting in San Francisco.

With best regards,

Hanno Petras, PhD
