What You Will Learn
Public health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work and play. The health of the community involves populations at risk, education and prevention programs, methods of assuring access to appropriate and cost-effective care, and the formation of sound public policies. Public health professionals play a vital role in improving community health issues such as the quality of life for the elderly, nutrition, food safety, water quality, vaccination programs, bio-terrorism, natural disasters, infectious diseases, as well as drug, alcohol, and tobacco abuse.
