March 2017

From the Editor-in-Chief
Dear AJPM reader,

On behalf of the AJPM editorial office, I am delighted to present this inaugural issue of AJPM-NOW, our new monthly digital newsletter. It's been a busy time since our editorial team took over the journal more than three years ago, and we've worked hard to improve and expand the journal's content and increase our outreach to new and continuing readers. We hope this newsletter will keep our readers better informed of highlights from our recent issues, the latest trending AJPM articles, information on current topics and challenges in preventive medicine and public health, developments in our social media platforms, special commentary from the AJPM editorial team, and major updates to the journal. We welcome your feedback; let us know what you think and how we can make AJPM-NOW more useful for you.
