Fifty essays on the state of population health from a vanguard voice in the field

Healthier is both an affirmation and an essential summary of the current challenges and opportunities for those working in and around the improvement of population health. The essays contained here champion an approach to health that is consequentialist and rooted in social justice an expansion of traditional, quantitatively motivated practice that will both inform and inspire any reader from student to seasoned practitioner.

Galea's cogent, incisive arguments guarantee that his perspective, currently at the forefront of public health, will soon become conventional wisdom.
