Northwest Public Health has won an Award of Excellence in APEX 2017, the 29th annual awards program that recognizes excellence in publishing by professional communicators. The award is for the magazine’s 2016 issue, “Digging Deeper to Solve our Hardest Health Issues.”

This year’s nationwide competition drew nearly 1,400 entries from corporate and nonprofit publishers, editors, writers, and designers. APEX awards are determined by a judging panel based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content, and the ability to achieve overall communications effectiveness.

“Our goal with the 2016 issue of Northwest Public Health was to help readers better understand how social determinants of health are interconnected with some of the greatest health challenges we see today,” said NWCPHP Director and magazine Editor in Chief, Betty Bekemeier. “This award affirms our ability to effectively communicate this important message to our practice community.”

The 2016 publication won in the Magazines, Journals & Tabloids – 1-2 Persons-Produced category. Published by the University of Washington School of Public Health and produced by the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice, the 2016 issue examined how and why certain underlying conditions, environments, and institutions—sometimes known as social determinants—impact health.

The 2017 issue of Northwest Public Health is now available. View the publication online, or request a print copy by emailing . Submit feedback via our reader survey by July 31, 2017, to be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of two $50 gift cards.
