"Here is a blueprint for transforming the health of Americans-if not the 6.4 billion citizens of the planet-for the twenty-first century. The book distills the collective wisdom of the population health sciences, combined with the principles of sustainable economic and human development, to conjure a vision of a democratic republic that places health, human rights, and social justice at the center stage of societal goals." -Ichiro Kawachi, M.D., Ph.D., Harvard University, School of Public Health "A breakthrough book. Throughout the entire volume, the prose is expertly crafted, thoroughly readable, and comprehensively referenced." -John Frank, M.D., CCFP, M.Sc., FRCP(C), University of Toronto, CIHR, Institute of Population and Public Health "Reinventing Public Health takes on the challenge of describing how societal characteristics influence population health and then determining a prescription for a set of healthy public policies. It is bold in its approach, comprehensive in its coverage, and integrative across policy domains." -John W. Lynch, Ph.D., M.P.H., M.Ed., University of Michigan, School of Public Health "Reinventing Public Health fills a void that has existed in the education of public health practitioners and researchers. It is the clearest and most cogent presentation that I have seen of the policy implications of fundamental causes of health in society." -Bernard J. Turnock, M.D., M.P.H., University of Illinois-Chicago, School of Public Health "This is a very refreshing new look at public health. Unlike many textbooks in public health which basically repeat what has been said many times before, this book looks at public health from a new and original perspective. It is well organized, well written, and well researched. I highly recommend it!" - Doody's Reviews "Presents an ambitious vision: health policy that encompasses a broad range of social, economic, and ecological factors that influence health, including sustainable economic development as well as a comprehensive array of human developmental, economic, and community factors." - Health AffairsFrom the Publisher:
"Reinventing Public Health" offers guidance for translating the growing body of research on the fundamental social, economic, and ecological determinants of health into innovative programs and policies to improve the health of populations.
