The grant, from the Thomas W. Ross Fund, will help the journal, which has been published biannually since 2007, receive greater exposure, said Dr. Peggy Valentine, dean of the School of Health Sciences.

The grants are administered by the Press’s Office of Scholarly Publishing Services (OSPS), which serves the UNC system by providing access to a range of sustainable, mission-driven publishing models and solutions.
