What Is Public Health?
Public health focuses on creating healthy communities through research, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and education. Public health focuses on disease and injury prevention, as well as health promotion. The focus is on a community as a whole, versus just focusing on one individual. Public health really encompasses all that is related to quality of life and well-being.
