From the Editor-in-Chief
Dear AJPM reader,

This month, the American Journal of Preventive Medicine is pleased to announce the debut of the newly organized journal Collections on our website. Whether you are looking for the latest on LGBT health, cutting edge research on tobacco, or the newest findings on physical activity, you'll find it in the journal collections where we have curated several years of AJPM articles by topical categories to make it easier for you to find the research you want to read.  We hope you find this new resource useful; please let us know.  

And don't forget to check out our August issue, featuring articles on cardiovascular health in the workplace, global food security and mental health, HPV vaccination, health disparities, anti-bullying policies, booster seat effectiveness, and much, much more.

Yours in prevention and health ,
