Welcome to Public Health
Public health is, in the words of the Institute of Medicine, "What we as a society do collectively to assure the conditions in which people can be healthy.''
Public health promotes well-being, prevents disease, social circumstances or emotional events that reduce the level of healthy functioning.Donate
