Health and Disease in Society Series


Our physical well being is directly related to our quality of life. However, new health concerns are constantly emerging to challenge our well being as well as our current awareness of disease. The foundation of managing public health rests on identifying the causes, courses, and effects of both common and uncommon afflictions and adapting appropriately as new pandemics arise. This prescient series examines various diseases and the epidemiological issues associated with crafting global responses to them.
