WHAT WE DO


The Epidemic Proportions Undergraduate Public Health Journal is designed to highlight student research, fieldwork, and interest in public health through a selection of diverse articles. Each article emphasizes a unique perspective or experience. This year we publish the 13th volume of our journal, an effort made possible by the contributions of our talented and passionate team of staff and authors.

DEFINING PUBLIC HEALTH


With the constant evolution of public health, we chose this year’s theme, Defining Public Health, to stress the many distinct attributes that form this extensive field. Through this focus we hope to shed light on the complexities of public health as well as to call attention to the wide scope of this discipline.

VOLUME 13, SPRING 2016

Public health is a field teeming with compassionate and dedicated people interested in helping more than just the individual, but rather entire populations. Because of this service, the public health community has been able to accomplish many amazing achievements such as eradicating small pox, improving maternal and infant health, and establishing regulations for worker safety. While there is still much work to be done, public health is a budding field that is rapidly expanding. Each day new problems are uncovered and each day new teams confront these challenges. Being a part of this field is truly like being a part of a community where everyone has the same goal in mind: to help populations improve their health and wellbeing.

With this we invite you to enjoy the many thought provoking articles in this year’s journal, Epidemic Proportions: Defining Public Health, and encourage you to contribute your own perspective to this diverse field.

HIGHLIGHTS

”The willingness to look at someone else’s lifestyle and implement a way to increase their standard of life.” -Marisol Encarnacion ’16

”Being aware of how to protect the current and future generations from preventable sickness and disease.” -Josh DiGiacomo’16

”Promoting the health and well-being of the public as a whole through research and policy.” -Hyejune Limb ’19

”On one hand, public health is incredibly broad. On the other hand, some question whether it is far too narrow. Public health typically limits itself to the health of the world’s human population, but leaves out the health of the biosphere, and the non-human species with whom we share the planet.

What does this mean for public health at JHU? Among other things, it means breaking down walls between departments and academic programs dealing with ecosystems and environmental sustainability, and those seeking to improve public health. It also means that each member of the Hopkins community needs to take steps to reduce her or his impact on the biosphere, most notably by consuming less.” - Dr. Peter Winch
