Continuous quality improvement (CQI) systems enable organizations to get better and better at what they do, thereby increasing the value of the products they make or the services they provide. This editorial argues that CQI principles are closely related to the goal of this journal to advance best practices in health promotion. To this end, contributors of articles are called on to write a discussion section that offers soaring insights alongside practical takeaways for our readers. Unlike other sections of an article, the discussion section is where scientists should feel emboldened to speculate, admit surprises, and muse about possible cause and effect relationships they found gratifying or troubling...

Paul E Terry
The proposed "Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act" states that the collection of information about the manifested disease or disorder of a family member shall not be considered an unlawful acquisition of genetic information. The bill recognizes employee privacy protections that are already in place and includes specific language relating to nondiscrimination based on illness. Why did legislation expressly intending to "preserve wellness programs" generate such antipathy about wellness among journalists? This article argues that those who are committed to preserving employee wellness must be equally committed to preserving employee privacy...

Scott J Dankel, Jeremy P Loenneke, Paul D Loprinzi
PURPOSE: Physical activity (PA) has previously been demonstrated to be inversely related with multimorbidity (having more than one chronic disease); however, it is unknown whether dual participation in both PA and muscle-strengthening activities (MSA) may further reduce the odds of being multimorbid. Therefore, the purpose of our study was to determine the association between multimorbidity and individuals meeting recommended guidelines for both PA and MSA. DESIGN: Nonexperimental...

SETTING: Pennsylvania, which represents a politically and demographically diverse microcosm of the United States...

PURPOSE: To examine psychometric properties of a Commitment to Physical Activity Scale for Adolescents (CPASA). DESIGN: Two test-retest studies and a prospective study, approved by a university institutional review board, were conducted in midwestern U.S. urban areas.

Paul D Loprinzi
PURPOSE: Research demonstrates that moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) is associated with a reduced risk of all-cause mortality. Few studies have examined the effects of light-intensity physical activity on mortality. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the association between objectively measured light-intensity physical activity and all-cause mortality risk. DESIGN: Longitudinal. SETTING: National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2003-2006 with follow-up through December 31, 2011...

PURPOSE: We combined data from the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection (NBCCEDP) and Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation (WISEWOMAN) programs in South Carolina to assess whether cancer screening outcomes in NBCCEDP impacted participation in WISEWOMAN lifestyle interventions, and whether the status of WISEWOMAN baseline risk factors (obesity, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, and smoking) determined subsequent completion of lifestyle interventions...

SETTING: The study took place in San Francisco Bay Area high schools during 2013...

INTERVENTION: Participants were randomized to either increase PA (iPA) or decrease sedentary leisure (dSED)...
