JCN: An Award Winning Journal!

We were excited to learn that JCN won three 2015 awards   from the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors from our hard work in 2014. The awards come from a group effort: authors who share their ideas and expertise, our editing and creative efforts, inspiration from God, and a truly exceptional art director Jenny Choi. Jenny is the best graphic designer in the industry--and God has blessed us with her gifts! Winning not one, not two, but three graphic design awards is an honor, brings attention to JCN and our content, and we pray, glory to God. I hope you'll take some time to enjoy this award winning journal and send us your feedback.

To God be the Glory!  Kathy
