Public Health Programs

Public Health

Public Health programs aim to promote and protect the health of the people and the communities where we live, learn, work, and play. A healthy public gets sick less frequently, spends less money on health care, increasing economic productivity, and achieving overall improved quality of life. Prevention efforts reduces suffering by impacting lifestyle choices and preparing people for possible effects of catastrophes such as hurricanes and a pandemic.
