Impact Sponsorship Packages

We welcome the opportunity to create a sponsorship package that prioritizes your goals. The principal sponsor of one issue of Impact receives a logo on the masthead and an advertisement on the inside front cover. We align the sponsor with the most relevant themed issue, customize the content and tailor the distribution list to ensure maximum visibility among target readers. A principal sponsorship package also includes a co-branded event designed and executed by team Impact, and an online engagement strategy to connect the sponsor directly with target audiences across multiple platforms.

Op-Ed Guidelines

If you would like to submit an op-ed for consideration, it must be exclusive to Impact. Your article should make a strong argument about a global health issue in the news. We prefer that the submission be 500-700 jargon-free words, submitted with a suggested headline, as an attachment in Microsoft Word. We require a photo of the author(s) and bio(s) of 50 words or less. We prefer an active professional photo (e.g., in the field, a speaking engagement), but a headshot is acceptable. Resolution must be 300 dpi. Include the photographer credit if professionally taken.
