Call for Papers

Submissions Due Feb. 28

The Journal of the Georgia Public Health Association (jGPHA) announces a call for papers for the Spring 2020 issue: Moving Translational Approaches to Community Transformation. Submissions are due by February 28, 2020.

The issue will place an emphasis on how multidisciplinary teams design, implement and assess the impact of translational research, policy, practice and educational initiatives designed with the explicit intent to transform community/population health in the State of Georgia.

While contributions of individual experts are undeniable, partners with varying perspectives that co-create research, policy or educational initiatives can result in more comprehensive, efficient, responsive and sustained approaches. The special issue editor invites community-engaged translational research, policy, practice and education papers for this Spring 2020 issue.
