Northwest Public Health Has a New Website

The Northwest Public Health's new website (www.nwpublichealth.org) is designed to be easier to navigate, to better represent the region, and to more actively engage the public health community.

October 5, 2011

The Northwest Public Health (NPH) journal has for many years been a special part of the public health community in the Pacific Northwest. Now it has a stronger, more robust online presence. NPH's new website (www.northwestpublichealth.org) is designed to be easier to navigate, to better represent the region, and to more actively engage the public health community.

The new website moves more in line with the print journal (redesigned in 2009) and better supports the NPH mission. 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, NPH is a print and online journal for the public health community in six Northwest states: Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.

NPH bridges academia and practice—one of the prime reasons it is so important to the public health community. Too often, scholarly findings are not translated into practice. And the achievements of the practice community are rarely communicated to academics. NPH is proud to solicit and publish articles from authors in both communities.

NPH is directed by an editorial board responsible for maintaining the journal's high quality content. The board has two members for each of the six states, one from academia and one from practice. Each board member is carefully selected for his or her passion and expertise.
