About the special issue
The articles in this special issue grew out of a 2-day workshop entitled "Maintenance of Behavior Change in Cardiorespiratory Risk Reduction," held by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in July 1998.
The purpose of the workshop was to summarize the current state of the science related to achieving long-term behavior change across risk behaviors (smoking, diet, obesity, and physical activity) and to develop recommendations for future research in these areas.
