As more organizations and disciplines across health and other fields strive to integrate population health concepts into their work, we find ourselves asking: How do we connect what we “know” about population health to what we “do” to improve it? The 2017 issue of Northwest Public Health examines the ties between social determinants and population health outcomes, and the successful policies, systems changes, interventions, innovations, and strategies being used to improve the health of whole populations.

“Articles in this issue add to the evidence about population health improvement,” said Northwest Public Health Editor in Chief, Betty Bekemeier, PHD, MPH. “These stories provide inspiring examples that demonstrate how our partners in practice and academia are applying new strategies for impact.” 

Topics covered in this issue include: depression care in the rural Northwest, homeless LGBTQ youth and marijuana use, opioid addiction, workforce training and systems changes, implementation science, Foundational Public Health Services, and childhood lead exposure prevention.

Northwest Public Health is published by the UW School of Public Health and produced by the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice. It is available online, and we invite you to take our reader survey while visiting the site. Visitors who submit feedback by August 1st will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of two $50 gift cards. Printed copies of the magazine can also be requested by emailing nph@uw.edu.
