Warne named to Health Affairs magazine Health Equity Project advisory board

The Health Affairs magazine Health Equity Project has selected its advisory board, which includes Dr. Don Warne, director of UND’s INMED and public health programs.

“We are honored to have such a distinguished group help guide our efforts to address racism and promote equity at Health Affairs and in scholarly publishing more broadly,” said Health Affairs Editor-In-Chief Alan Weil in a news release.

The purpose of the magazine’s project is to address racism and promote equity in scholarly publishing. Health Affairs will accomplish this with programming designed to increase the quality and quantity of studies authored by members of racial and ethnic groups previously underrepresented in the magazine, officials said.

In a blog post published in January 2021, the magazine affirmed its “commitment to equity with the launch of our Health Equity Project and the announcement of a three-part agenda that pursues the goal of increasing equity at Health Affairs.”

Congratulations, Dr. Warne!
