Northwest Public Health is many things to the public health community in the Pacific Northwest. It is a clearinghouse for new ideas. It is a place to share best practices. It is a forum for current and evolving issues. Published by the University of Washington School of Public Health, Northwest Public Health is a tool for the public health community in six Northwest states: Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.
This linking of academia and practice is why Northwest Public Health is important to the public health community in our region. Too often, scholarly findings are not translated into practice. And the achievements of the practice community are rarely communicated to academics. We are proud to solicit and publish articles from authors in both communities.
Northwest Public Health is directed by an Editorial Board that is invaluable to the production of high quality content that bridges practice and academia. Each board member is carefully selected for his or her passion and expertise. For each of the six states, two members (one from academia, one from practice) serve on the board.
