Everything is Public Health

Everything is Public Health

So many things impact our health. The physical things around you, the social interactions, the policies you may never notice, are all quietly there, influencing our health and wellbeing in subtle ways everyday. Some are there on purpose to prevent bad outcomes, some are issues that we still need to address, but most go unnoticed by many of us. This is the world of public health; a science of understanding the countless forces and designing solutions to help prevent or mitigate harm and improve the health of the people. Every Thursday, this podcast explores one concept and delves into those hidden forces. Welcome to Everything is Public Health.

Medical debt is a big problem that affects millions of Americans, which raises the question: Why is healthcare so expensive in this country? 

Perhaps we are asking the question from the wrong perspective.
