CALL FOR PAPERS

The BC Publication Committee invites submissions for Volume 6, August 2020. There will be continued emphasis on Student Success: A National Focus. However, the theme for Volume 6 is the following:

“Health Education: Institutional and Industry Structures As Well As Practices that Impact Individuals and the Community”

We are living in an era where people are living longer, health costs are increasing, and sedentary lifestyles are contributing to health issues. Whether physical, psychological, or social, the overall societal wellness is deteriorating and the lines of medical ethics begin to blur.

How can we begin to foster early mindfulness that will generate impactful and sustainable changes that will benefit our youth? This discussion on a country’s Health Education must be inclusive, multi-dimensional and multi-professional, incorporating the perspectives of institutions, organizations, medical professionals and informed members of the community.

Health Education:

  • Allied Health
  • Health Education and the Internet
  • Research Article on Bermudian perspectives about BC Nursing Programme
  • Health and Safety
  • Promoting Health Literacy in Bermuda
  • Health Industry Education for Community
