Public Health 101 provides a big-picture, population perspective on the determinants of health and disease and the tools available to protect and promote health. It examines the full range of "options for intervention" including use of the health care system, the public health system, and society-wide interventions such as laws and taxation. Students will learn how public health affects them in their everyday lives. Using case studies, vignettes, and extensive examples, they will learn and apply frameworks for thinking about the issues of public health. They will gain a deeper understanding about the health news they hear, the web sites they visit, and the research they read. Features: Public Health 101 fully implements the curriculum framework, learning objectives and enduring understandings recommended by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR) faculty development program. Frameworks for thinking, checklists of questions-to-ask, step-by-step examples and plenty of case studies provide students with hands-on practice. Case studies, vignettes, and extensive illustrations reinforce the materials and allow a wide choice to interactive exercises for faculty to draw on for classroom discussions, homework, and examinations. A student web site including interactive practice exams, flash cards, an interactive glossary as well as periodic updates will enhance student learning.
