Announcing a New Partnership Between the American Medical Association and Lippincott Williams &Wilkins
Leading healthcare publisher Lippincott Williams &Wilkins, part of Wolters Kluwer Health, is pleased to announce a new publishing partnership with the American Medical Association (AMA). Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness, a new publication debuting in 2007, will be the first comprehensive and authoritative journal emphasizing public health preparedness and disaster response for all health care and public health professionals. The journal will translate science into practice and integrate medical and public health perspectives.
With the events of September 11, the subsequent anthrax attacks, the tsunami in Indonesia, hurricane Katrina, SARS and the fear of pandemic influenza, all health care and public health professionals must be prepared to respond to emergency situations. In support of these pressing public health needs, Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness is committed to the medical and public health communities who are the stewards of the health and security of citizens worldwide.
“We are excited about this opportunity to partner with the American Medical Association and publish this important and influential journal,” said Betsy Jones, EVP and GM of journal publishing at Lippincott Williams &Wilkins. “Partnering with the AMA on this publication will allow us to contribute to the body of knowledge emerging to define this international field.” Adds Jeff McCaulley, CEO &President, Wolters Kluwer Health, “Both the AMA and Wolters Kluwer Health identified an unmet need for health care professionals to have access to evidence–based information dedicated to helping them help others in the event of any emergency situation. This journal was born out of a shared goal — to inform the very health care communities who are expected to reach out and serve the public at its greatest time of need.”
