Its National Public Health Week
We have the potential to greatly improve our population’s health in the future. By recommitting ourselves to support our nation’s public health system, we can build on the successes of the past and establish the solid foundation needed for a healthy nation. This week aims to highlight these issues, educate the public about public health problems and potential solutions.
My own initial training was to be a clinician (a clinical psychologist), treating individual behavioral health problems. However, I have learned that having efficient healthcare systems and having public policies that support health are of critical importance to the health and the quality of life for people in this country.
