PCD Collections

Preventing Chronic Disease is dedicated to reporting practical scientific research, programs, and policy efforts to improve the health of communities. Our articles advance current knowledge and contribute to the welfare of people beyond the interventions they describe. In this section, we have grouped together previously published articles under specific topics and themes for rapid dissemination to our readers. We are making these collections available as part of our mission to facilitate through publication widespread implementation of science-based interventions that improve the health and well-being of communities.
