The field of public health—though sometimes misunderstood—plays a critical role in
the promotion of health, prevention of disease, and empowerment of people to manage
chronic illness and disabilities. Every finding, awareness campaign, and policy has
the potential to positively impact the lives of millions of people around the world.
In the first of this new video series, discover how different facets of public health work together to drive lasting change. Stay tuned for upcoming videos, where we'll build on this foundation to explore more specific public health topics like social determinants of health, vaccines, mental health, and health policy.
