Lurie Children’s Launches Health Advocacy Journal

The peer-reviewed ‘open access journal’ seeks to address challenges to health equity -by Bruce Japsen

Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago has launched a peer-reviewed open access journal designed to bridge the gap “between knowledge and action to empower individuals and groups to address real-world challenges to health equity,” executives at the Chicago pediatric medical center said.

The Journal of Health Advocacy, which opened for submissions on May 1 of this year, will
publish health advocacy research, scholarship and perspectives focused on improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities, Lurie Children’s executives and journal editors said.

The journal’s content will include everything from original articles and commentaries to “review articles, case studies, education curricula, education scholarship and other innovative article types,” Lurie Children’s said in announcing the new journal, which is housed in Lurie’s Patrick M. Magoon Institute for Healthy Communities.

“Disseminating and recognizing advocacy that is so often successful, but not disseminated, can lead to more action and better policies,” said Vamshi K. Rao, MD, The Journal of Health Advocacy’s co-editor-in-chief who is also a neurologist at Lurie Children’s and associate professor of pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
