This week, The Milbank Quarterly, a leading health policy journal, announced the formation of a new Editorial Advisory Board. The Gerald R. Ford School Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Paula Lantz will be one of 38 scholars who comprise the new board. Coming from a variety of disciplines, health professions, and academic organizations, new board members are expected to bring fresh perspectives and expertise in population health and health policy.
Lantz teaches and conducts research regarding the role of social policy in improving population health and reducing health inequities. She is currently leading a project regarding the potential for and challenges associated with using social impact bonds to finance interventions aimed at upstream social determinants of health. She was recently the lead writer of an Amicus Curiae brief supporting Governor Whitmer’s use of emergency powers in response to COVID-19.
“We are delighted to welcome these distinguished scholars and thought leaders to the board, and look forward to working with them. We are confident that they will add value to the journal in their roles as advisors to the editorial team,” said Quarterly Editor Alan Cohen.
Continuously published since 1923, The Milbank Quarterly is a multidisciplinary journal of population health and health policy. It presents original research, synthesis, policy analysis, and commentary from leading thinkers, policymakers, and practitioners. The Quarterly’s goal is to publish scholarly papers that illuminate and add new insights to the understanding of important policy issues involving health and health care.
