Message from the Editor in Chief: It is with great enthusiasm that the AAR journal invites you to read our first issue! It contains the research of University of Alberta students on two very important topics to Canada and the world today. We hope that our readers will enjoy reading these publications. With this issue AAR opens the sequence of a variety of high-quality interdisciplinary research that we will continue to publish for years to come. As the Editor in Chief of AAR journal I would like thank our hard-working volunteers, the University of Alberta Library, and the patient authors themselves for helping AAR to achieve this first milestone!

Health and Education go hand in hand, but there is also a need for a supportive environment to help motivate healthy living. These are some of the messages the authors in this volume share with us.

Focusing on Health: from farm animals to humans.Vol. 1 No. 2 (2019)
We are proud and happy to announce our second issue with three articles focusing on health. AAR Vol1 Issue 2 starts with a review of the factors influencing calf-health. This article highlights that good alimentation of the gestating cow can enhance the health of the calf. The second article in this issue reviews the importance of improving patient care in the US as a way to reduce healthcare cost (coming soon). The third article is primary research focusing on the human's immune response, it uncovers the role of mast cells initiating the immune system response (coming soon). The three papers were written by former undergraduate students. We hope this will encourage other students to experience the peer-review process and publish their work so that it can be shared worldwide!
