WHAT IS PUBLIC HEALTH?

Public Health is a new and exciting field that gives you the opportunity to change the world around you. Being a Public Health superhero means saving lives – not only yours, but the lives of your family and friends, the people in your country, and the lives of people around the world – through:

  • Reducing health disparities – fighting for health care equity, quality, and accessibility.

  • Improving the health of your community – education, promoting healthy behavior and lifestyle.

  • Protecting your community – preventive measures against health threats, research for disease and injury prevention.

  • Focusing on entire populations, rather than individuals – protecting the lives of a population that can be as small as a neighborhood or as big as a country.

 EVERY SUPERHERO NEEDS A SIDEKICK.
