From the Editor

For many of us, especially those in the warmer states, spring is starting to arrive. With spring comes new flora, the associated pollen, and the resulting allergies. A more welcome arrival is the May/June issue of the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice. Our Guest Editors, Paul Erwin and C. William Keck have developed this comprehensive issue on “The Academic Health Department.” A series of 17 articles illustrates the scope and importance of this modality throughout the nation.  Most of the articles in this issue depict the advantages of the Academic Health Department in the education of public health students.  In addition to providing these opportunities, the Academic Health Department can also be useful for the education of medical students and physicians-in-training in clinical and population-based preventive medicine.

In addition, we have posted a commentary written By Anthony Schlaff, MD, MPH, immediate Past-President of the Association of Prevention Teaching and Research providing one perspective on a report recommending changes in MPH education in the 21st Century from an expert panel associated with the Framing the Future Task Force assembled by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH).  Another perspective on the recommendations of this report by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASSPH) will be published ahead of print on our website www.JPHMP.com in the next several weeks. Both commentaries will appear in a print issue of the journal this summer.
