What is public health?

Public Health is the science and art of protecting and improving the health of communities through education, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and research for disease and injury prevention. Public Health helps improve the health and well-being of people in local communities and around the globe. Public Health works to prevent health problems before they occur.
