Two Award-Winning Issues of Northwest Public Health

The two issues of Northwest Public Health have won the top award in the Puget Sound Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication publications competition

Award JournalsThe two previous issues of Northwest Public Health have won the top award in the Puget Sound Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication publications competition.

Climate Change: Challenging Public Health (fall/winter 2008) and Bridges to the Future: New Partners. New Tools. (spring/summer 2009) were deemed "distinguished" by the judges, which is the highest honor.

Northwest Public Health is a semi-annual publication of the University of Washington's School of Public Health. These two issues were the first to be produced by the school's Northwest Center for Public Health Practice, but the publication has been connecting the academic and practice community since 1979.

Today, Northwest Public Health is a peer-reviewed journal that thematically addresses the concerns of local, state, and tribal public health throughout Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.

Both award-winning issues of Northwest Public Health were presented as "distinguished" entries at the Competition Showcase on January 19, 2010 in Seattle, Washington. They will now be submitted to the Society for Technical Communication international competition. Awards for the international competition will be announced in the spring of 2010.
