There is knowledge in the pages of Appalachia's hills. This journal is positioned to find and publish those translations. It grows from a need to provide an outlet for scholarship about Appalachia's health so that knowledge, and occasionally wisdom, is shared with those who care about and are committed to improving the region's health.
Keywords: Appalachia's health; improving the health of the region.
