Health Administration Section Highlighted in Journal Issue


Johnson, Teddi Dineley, The Nation's Health


A UNIQUE suggestion arrived in Lloyd Novick's e-mail in December 2008. Leaders of APHA's Health Administration Section wrote to ask if Novick, editor of the Journal of Public Health Management & Practice, would be interested in publishing a special issue highlighting Section members' work.

New administrative techniques are illustrated, including methods to improve public health accreditation and local public health department priority setting. Some of the articles apply the principles to contemporary challenges, such as pandemic planning and obesity prevention.
