Volume 2, Issue 1 (2017) Special Issue of the Ancestral Health Symposium 2016

Editor Note

Welcome to the Special Symposium issue of the Journal of Evolution and Health (JEH)!

Starting with the 2016 symposium (AHS16), we have begun offering the opportunity for each presenter (poster or paper) to submit an extended abstract based on their presentation for inclusion in the special issue of JEH.

Please enjoy perusing these extended abstracts that cover topics ranging from diet and movement, to disease and health, to microbiome, food policy, and evolutionary medicine.
