The Northwest Center for Public Health Practice (NWCPHP) proudly celebrates its 20th year, and one of the major activities is the launch of an annual report and 20-year retrospective. This 24-page, full-color publication is produced as a Special Supplement to the School of Public Health journal, Northwest Public Health, and is now available.

There is a PDF of the entire publication, as well as links to the individual articles in the Annual Report section of our 20th Anniversary pages.

If you would prefer a printed version, please e-mail NWCPHP with your name and mailing address.

This annual report and 20-year retrospective includes stories about activities done in each of our partner states, reminiscences from NWCPHP's five former directors, and, of course, information on NWCPHP training, research, and evaluation activities available to public health throughout the region.

The story begins in a leaky University of Washington basement office in 1990 as NWCPHP opens in the School of Public Health Department of Health Services. It reflects on 20 years of public health priorities, technology, and tools. It is apparent that over the past 20 years one element has remained constant: dedication to public health in the Pacific Northwest region.

Thank you to all who have provided encouragement and support for the development of this publication and of the other 20th anniversary activities.
