These are strange times for clinical prevention in the United States. The media is filled with health news, and stores have aisles of low-fat food, but Americans are becoming more sedentary and obese.
Managed care organizations now boast about their prevention performance on increasingly sophisticated report cards but value practitioners who see four or five patients an hour. Health care purchasers demand these report cards but readily switch their employees into a different health plan to save a few premium dollars. And in the near future, a raft of biotechnology firms will market genetic tests that tell patients about diseases they haven't even developed Physicians have their own conflicts about prevention in the late 20th century.

Health promotion is a behavioral social science that draws from the biological, environmental, psychological, physical and medical sciences to promote health and prevent disease, disability and premature death through education-driven voluntary behavior change activities. Health promotion is the development of individual, group, institutional, community and systemic strategies to improve health knowledge, attitudes, skills and behavior. The purpose of health promotion is to positively influence the health behavior of individuals and communities as well as the living and working conditions that influence their health. In schools health educators teach health as a subject and promote and implement Coordinated School Health Programs, including health services, student, staff and parent health education, and promote healthy school environments and school-community partnerships.
