The Public Health Journey: The Meaning and the Moment
Koh, Howard K.
Health Education & Behavior, v40 n6 p635-639 Dec 2013
The public health journey is a remarkable one, filled with twists and turns as well as risks and rewards. Because promoting the health of others represents a mission brimming with meaning, our professional work is also profoundly personal. At this extraordinary moment in our nation's public health history, I reflect on the purpose of the journey and comment on the opportunities before us to become a healthier nation in the future.
