Public Health: An Introduction to the Science and Practice of Population Health
Public Health: An Introduction to the Science and Practice of Population Health is a foundational textbook designed for students who are launching their public health studies and preparing for professions in the field. Our health is generated throughout our lives and by the world around us—by where we live, where we work, and who we interact with on a daily basis. This book therefore takes a unique approach to teaching public health. It combines an eco-social framework with a life course perspective on population health to help the student understand how our experiences and our context shape our health and how this informs the practice of public health.
