Public health addresses the health needs of the population as a whole and not as individuals. The idea of public health is to build better systems to give all people what they need to reach their full potential for health.

The ultimate goal of public health is to improve population health across all populations and with a particular focus on eliminating disparities. Public health keeps our food and water supply safe, contains outbreaks of contagious diseases and helps remove disparities in access to healthcare.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
