What is public health and why is it important?
Public Health is the science of promoting, protecting and improving the health of the population as a whole rather than on the individual level. This may be done through promotion of healthy/healthier lifestyles, preventative methods ( examples: putting a stop on heroin crisis, reducing the number of mental disease/sickness among the homeless, reducing the rapid rates of HIV/AIDS in urban communities etc.), and research on controlling diseases. Public Health is matters because it focuses on protecting the health of entire populations rather than focusing on the individual, which in turn, leads to better health outcomes, longer life expectancies, less chronic diseases throughout the nation, and living longer healthier lives.
Why does ethnicity matter?
Ethnicity matters because it cannot exist on its own; ethnicity is sometimes used as a social construct used to distinguish one group from another on assumption that one group shares something that the other group does not. It can also be used as a tool of communication between families and generations.
