Public Health: Important to Everyone
Public Health is an integral part of our health care system. While a doctor takes care of people when they are sick, it's the Public Health Department that works to prevent people from getting sick or injured in the first place. Public Health does this by working to prevent the spread of infectious disease, encouraging healthy habits, and setting safety standards for the workplace, among other programs.
In this episode, Kristine and Radhika will delve into what a good public health system looks like and why this matters to everyone's health.
