  • Include Wisconsin-specific data and interventions.
  • Describe the role of physicians and the health care system.
  • Consider policy, systems, and environmental approaches.

Authors should refer to the Instructions for Authors for manuscript guidelines.  In the cover letter accompanying your submission, please indicate that it is for the special issue.
