Health Promoting Behaviors Across the Lifespan

Purpose

The focus of the Health Promoting Behaviors Across the Lifespan RIG is to advance nursing knowledge of successful approaches to health promotion, disease prevention, and self-management in diverse populations. As part of the larger health care community, nursing scholars work to better understand the complexity of factors that contribute to health behavior.

We seek to promote discussion about the diverse types of health promoting behavior research conducted by MNRS members, and to provide avenues for collaboration, consultation, and dissemination.

Who Should Join?

Anyone with an interest in health promotion activities, especially among marginalized and vulnerable populations
