  • Description:
    This has been a successful year for Preventing Chronic Disease (PCD). In 2013, PCD received more new submissions and published more articles than ever before. PCD developed and implemented a new article type, GIS Snapshots, which present information on key health indicators in a map format to help federal, state, local, and Tribal practitioners visualize the health status in their communities. The journal continues to develop innovative ways to use technologies to bring the latest evidence and innovations to researchers and practitioners in the field. PCD continues to be dedicated to being the premier forum for exchange of public health evidence for practitioners, researchers, and policy makers. We look forward to a productive and dynamic 2014 and will continue working to improve the high quality standards of PCD.
