Florida Public Health Review

About This Journal

The Florida Public Health Review was started in 2004 through a partnership between the University of South Florida College of Public Health and the Florida Public Health Association, with Dr. Robert J. McDermott as Founding Editor. From August 2013 to April 2019, the Review was housed at and published under the leadership of Dr. Mary P. Martinasek at the University of Tampa, College of Natural and Health Sciences, and edited in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance.

    The Review is now hosted by the University of North Florida, Brooks College of Health in the Department of Public Health.

      Aims & Scope

      The Florida Public Health Review aims to provide students, public health professionals, researchers, and other members of the public health community with opportunities to improve their knowledge of emerging public health topics. The Review features articles that focus on:

      • public health research
      • commentaries addressing contemporary public health issues
      • evaluation of public health programs, and
      • other topics that contribute to the public health profession in Florida and beyond.

      The ultimate goal of the Florida Public Health Review is to provide readers with content that fills gaps in current public health practice and knowledge. The Florida Public Health Review offers an electronic, open access journal of practice, original research, and other scholarship of interest and relevance to Florida’s public health practitioner and academic communities. The opinions expressed by the authors of articles, letters and other materials published in the Florida Public Health Review are not necessarily those of the Florida Public Health Association or the University of North Florida.
