|February 26, 2013|
Mark Holmes, PhD, assistant professor of health policy and management at the Gillings School of Global Public Health, has been elected chair of the editorial board of The Journal of Rural Health. He began his one-year term on Jan. 1.
Holmes became a member of the editorial board in 2010. As chair, he will help determine all aspects of the journal, from content and organization to layout and design.
"The Journal of Rural Health is the leading source of scientific inquiry for rural health research," Holmes said. "I am grateful that there is an outlet dedicated to science designed to improve the health of our 62 million rural residents."
The peer-reviewed, international journal, published quarterly by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA), is dedicated to advancing professional practice, research, theory development and public policy related to rural health. Established in 1985, it serves as a medium for communication among health scientists and professionals in practice, educational, research and policy settings.
The NHRA, a nonprofit organization with more than 21,000 members, aims to provide leadership on rural health issues.
