As we begin a new year, we continue to explore how we can best serve your needs as a valued ACPM member. After reviewing the responses you provided on our 2015 needs assessment survey, along with ongoing feedback we receive about our newsletter, ACPM Headlines, we have identified new, improved approaches to delivering ACPM and preventive medicine news content.
Going forward in 2016, we will bring you more targeted, frequent and shorter newsletters, based on specific topics or categories of information. This will allow you to customize your experience, as you will be able to opt out of newsletters you do not wish to receive and select only the content you prefer.
In 2016 ACPM no longer will be providing ACPM Headlines in its current form, but rather will offer news and developments from the field and the College via three different newsletters. The bi-weekly Research and Reports newsletter will offer a compilation of titles of recent and relevant preventive medicine research and reports, linking directly to source articles and documents. The monthly Policy and Practice newsletter will be similar in format, focusing on policy issues in preventive medicine and public health. Lastly, the monthly ACPM News will be similar in look and feel to the current Headlines, but its scope will be confined to articles, columns, and features on what is happening at ACPM and with our members. It may also include short announcements of external events, volunteer opportunities, and funding opportunities we believe would be of interest to you and our broader membership.
In addition to these three newsletters, ACPM also offers topic-specific newsletters in lifestyle medicine, health systems transformation, and violence prevention, and will offer continued opportunities to opt into these and other newsletters.
All of these changes are included as part of your membership. As we have priced out this package for non-members, this is a $60 value to you.
As we roll out the new format, your ongoing input will be critical, and there will be ample opportunities for your feedback and refinement. Keep an eye out for short surveys and evaluation forms that we will send along periodically with the newsletters, and please take the time to respond to help us better serve your needs. In the meantime, please feel free to email any feedback to email@example.com, or call me directly at 202-466-2044 x106.
I am looking forward to your active participation as we refine our content generation and dissemination to enhance your experience with ACPM, and to a great year for the College in 2016!
