This is an essential, timely, well-referenced, and thorough update of the subjects covered in Public Health and Aging. Choice I would like to recommend it for all pre-entry health practice and policy courses... at the very least it should be a reference text. -- Rhonda Nay Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health An extremely well-written, well-researched, and thorough book, with each topic written by experts. It will be extremely useful to researchers, faculty, practitioners, and students alike. -- Sarah J. Olson Health Promotion Practice Public Health for an Aging Society is a highly readable volume that captures the essence of public health, introduces the reader to current aging-related challenges, provides direction for addressing those challenges, and offers a glimpse of things to come. After finishing this volume, even the more seasoned among us are likely to have learned something new, to have expanded the way they think about an issue or two, and may even find that their enthusiasm for what we do in public health has been reignited. -- Sara J. McLaughlin Gerontologist A current, essential read; a primer for the scholar interested in research and policy setting as they affect the aging individual within a societal framework for public health... Comprehensive, well referenced, and presents a gestalt perspective that illuminates the aged within a public-health framework... Public Health for an Aging Society is a valuable read for academicians, researchers, clinicians, and policy makers. It is also valuable for each and every one of us as we move through life and become aware of this growing vulnerable population that needs our assistance for safety and security. -- Julia A. Greenawalt Activities, Adaptation and Aging
