    Article - En anglais

    This paper illustrates the utility of theory for health educators who advocate for health promotion policies and programs.

    It describes how diffusion of innovation and other social science theories were employed by a statewide coalition called the Health Promotion and Education Council of Virginia in its effort to reduce premature and preventable death and disability in the state.

    To this end the Council sought legislative action to accelerate the diffusion of health promotion throughout the state.
