Welcome to the Society for Health Psychology (SfHP). As the current President of the Society, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. Whether you are a member of our Society or someone interested in health psychology, I hope you take some time to explore and utilize the broad array of resources we provide. You will find information about initiatives that address education and training, research, and practice. Our quarterly newsletter,The Health Psychologist, is also available through our website and for those interested in history there is an archive of issues that goes back to 2007. Information about our field-shaping journal, Health Psychology, is also available and members of the Society will find a link directly to articles. The Society's Twitter feed and Facebook page also provide excellent, on-going information about issues relevant to our field.
