Submissions coauthored by primary-care and public health professionals are encouraged. All manuscripts will undergo the standard peer-review process by AJPH and AJPM editors and peer referees. Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://ajph.edmgr.com; deadline for submission is August 1, 2011.
