In this inaugural post of the Northwestern Public Health Review, we would like to give a brief introduction to who we are, what we do, and how you can be involved.
The Northwestern Public Health Review was launched last year by Osefame Ewaleifoh and Celeste Mallama, two public health students at Northwestern University to showcase the depth and breadth of scholarship in the field public health in our community. The first journal was published in October 2013 and can be found on our website, http://www.nphr.org. Articles range from recollections of the Framingham Heart Study, to an insider look at the Illinois Department of Public Health, to a history of HIV/AIDS care at Northwestern. Since then the editorial board of the journal has grown tremendously in anticipation of the the next addition of the journal to be published this spring 2014.
This blog serves as a complement to the journal, featuring shorter pieces meant to stimulate discussion in the community. We want to hear from you! We are looking for both journal articles and blog writers. If you are a public health or medical student, faculty, or visiting scholar, you can reach us at our email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
