What is Public Health?

Public health is all around us!

Public health efforts improve our quality of life in numerous ways. The Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington is “reimagining public health through a comprehensive approach that enhances and expands disease prevention and is reshaping how parks, tourism, sports, leisure activities, physical activity, and nutrition impact and enhance wellness. Unique in the nation, our school’s multidisciplinary approach, history of community engagement, and emerging strengths in epidemiology, biostatistics, and environmental health bring new vigor and energy to the traditional concept of a school of public health.”

What is public health to you? How does your major or career path improve quality of life for yourself and others?
