Notice to Readers: Call for Manuscripts Addressing Community Assessment Health Impact (Assessment Initiative Project)

Since 1992, CDC has provided funds through the Assessment Initiative project to improve the ways data are used to guide public health decisions and policies. States funded by the Assessment Initiative have shared their experiences in applied data analysis, presentation techniques, policy development, and community health assessment processes and outcomes through publication in peer-reviewed journals and at the Assessment Initiative annual conferences.

The Journal of Public Health Management and Practice, a peer-reviewed journal, will focus an issue on the effects of community health assessments. Of particular interest are the effects of these assessments and supporting tools (e.g., web-based data-query systems) on health status, health outcomes, health behaviors, and health-system changes, including changes in policies, practices, or infrastructure.

Scientists and program managers who are involved in community health assessment, including those from state and local health departments, federal agencies, community organizations, and universities, are encouraged to submit two-page proposals for articles to be included in this focus issue. Proposals submitted by state health departments currently and previously funded by the Assessment Initiative project will be given priority for acceptance.

The two-page proposals should be submitted to Nelson Adekoya by e-mail ( by March 31, 2007. Upon acceptance of the proposals, authors will be invited to develop manuscripts. Manuscripts will then be submitted for peer review. Additional information regarding the Assessment Initiative is available at
