The Future of Public Health

The Future of Public Health

Today’s public health system addresses an array of challenges, including chronic diseases, mental health, substance abuse, traumatic injuries, environmental and occupational health, and bioterrorism. This supplement, based on a symposium at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, features national experts in public health who contend that increased life expectancy is leading us to a convergence of scientific, demographic, and economic forces that could lead public health to preempt clinical medicine as the primary focus of American health care.
