Public Health: What It Is and How It Works, 6th Edition

Book Description

Using a straightforward approach, Public : What It Is and How It Works explores the inner workings of the complex, modern U.S. public system―what it is, what it does, how it works, and why it is important. The book covers the origins and development of the modern public system; the relationship of public to the overall system; how the system is organized at the federal, state, and local levels; its core and how well these are currently being addressed; evidence-based practice and an approach to program planning and evaluation for public health interventions; public health activities such as epidemiological investigation, biomedical research, environmental assessment, policy development, and more.
