What is Public Health?

This morning, I got to work and stared at the computer screen for a few minutes. I hopped onto YouTube and started searching Public Health.

What is Public Health?

Public health is “the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting human health through organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals.”

-Wikipedia (lol)

Public Health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work and play.

Whereas Doctors and Physicians treat the injury, the purpose of Public Health professionals are to treat the cause.

(Per previous post)

As a nursing program is no longer immediately available to me.. I realized that the Universe was telling me something.

I’m a student… pursuing a Bachelor’s in Public Health.
