Athlete safety and the prevention of sudden death on the field are growing concerns in sports and physical activity. That's what makes the groundbreaking Preventing Sudden Death in Sport and Physical Activity, Second Edition by Douglas J. Casa and Rebecca L. Stearns so essential.

“The new edition of this important book reflects the updates in this field as a result of the research since the previous edition. I will use in my daily practice.”

The growth of undergraduate public health education shows no signs of slowing down. The latest Department of Education data shows over 10,000 bachelor's degree graduates per year. This does not include the growing number of public health and global health minors or courses designed for general education or to prepare student for clinical graduate education.

As Zika spreads to the U.S., climate change becomes a daily reality, and the presence of antibiotic resistance becomes a threat to human health, the One Health movement has emerged to help us understand how it all fits together. One Health looks at the relationship between human, animal, and ecosystem health and offers the potential for dramatic progress if the health professions work together to address these issues.
Much has been written in the popular press about the looming shortage of physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals (Corwin, 2015; Grant, 2016; Mishoe, 2004). Comparatively little ink, however, has been used to discuss the looming shortage of public health workers. Why? I would venture to guess that much like housework and lawn mowing, unless it is not done, few note when it is done. The workers, like the labor involved, are invisible—until there is a disaster or the mess is on the Mayor’s front porch, as it was in the nine-day long New York City garbage strike of 1968 and the seventeen-day long strike of 1981.

In April 2016, Unite for Sight asked me to facilitate a workshop on teaching global health at its annual Global Health and Innovation Conference. This followed a similar workshop I led in April 2014.
The aims of the 90-minute workshop were to exchange ideas about:
- How teachers and students might keep up to date in such a rapidly changing field
- Some of the key value and content issues in teaching global health
- How participants might get better access to selected global health “experts”
More than six years after becoming law, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) remains heavily litigated. Since 2010, dozens of lawsuits have been lodged against it, with four of them reaching the United States Supreme Court – a remarkable number given the law’s relatively short lifespan and the fact that the Court only grants approximately 80 of the 8,000 case petitions it receives each year. ACA litigation continued apace over the past year, with two new important decisions handed down in May of 2016.

100 Questions and Answers about Sports Nutrition & Exercise
, offer expert insights on the benefits of exercise during pregnancy.
When you’re struggling to keep a meal down during the first trimester, adapting to a changing body in the second, or huffing and puffing to make it to the bathroom as you near your due date then hitting the gym might be the last thing on your mind. But a growing body of research suggests that exercise has big benefits for both you and your baby. Even a simple walk around the block or a session of stretching can lead to an improved mood, better sleep, an easier labor and a quicker recovery.
