Northwest Public Health, the historically biannual journal published by the School of Public Health at the University of Washington, is the proud recipient of a 2011 award of excellence from the Awards for Publication Excellence (APEX).

In the past, Northwest Public Health has won a number of APEX awards, including the highest honor of "Grand Award" in 2007. This year, following two years of significant changes and updates, NWCPHP entered the Spring 2008 edition of Northwest Public Health and the Fall 2010 edition of Northwest Public Health in the "Most Improved" category for journals and magazines.

The judges confirmed that over the past two years, Northwest Public Health has continued to improve its delivery of pertinent, well-written, and well designed information to public health professionals throughout the Northwest region.

"Northwest Public Health has consistently been recognized as a quality publication by its peers, as evidenced by past awards. The latest award shows we are keeping current and applying a 'continuous quality improvement' approach to the journal, as we do with our other activities," said the journal's Editor-in-Chief, Susan Allan, MD, JD, MPH.

Northwest Public Health provides a forum for practitioners, teachers, researchers, and policy makers in public health to exchange ideas, describe innovations, and discuss current issues. You can read the current issue, and find past issues at www.northwestpublichealth.org.
