Progress in Community Health Partnerships (PCHP) and the Gulf States Health Policy Center (GS-HPC) are collaborating to release this Call for Papers on the theme of “Community-Academic Partnerships in Health Research in the Southeast.”
This PCHP special issue aims to include articles on best practices in community-academic partnerships for improving health outcomes in the Southeast region of the United States, defined as Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia, as a regional particularly vulnerable to health disparities. To this effect, we are inviting papers and products (see Author Guidelines) presenting research that was conducted by partnerships of community members and academics. We place a priority on manuscripts co-authored by community members and academics and those that include the community perspective of the research process. The call is open to all areas of health policy and/or health research, focusing on the community-academic process and/or results.
