Happy National Public Health Week!
This is the first installment of a 2-part commentary by Jones & Bartlett Learning author and health policy expert, Joel Teitelbaum, on the most recent challenge to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), now a case before the U.S. Supreme Court. The second installment will discuss the Supreme Court’s decision in the case (expected by the end of June, when the Court concludes its current term).
Earlier this week, we conducted an Undergraduate Public Health webinar with featured presenter, Dr. Richard K. Riegelman, MD, MPH. It explored important topics, such as:
Introduction to Air Pollution Science: A Public Health Perspective by Robert F. Phalen and Robert N. Phalen just received 4 stars from Doody's Review Service! According to reviewer, J. Thomas Pierce, MBBS, PhD, from Navy Environmental Health Center, it provides a straightforward "public health perspective that variously emphasizes air pollution impacts while placing them in the context of many public health concerns such as nutrition and infectious diseases."
Doody's Review Service recently reviewed Introduction to Health Behavior Theory, Second Edition by Joanna Aboyoun Hayden. According to reviewer, Karen N. Ouzts, BSN, MSN, PhD, from Walden University, it is "a perfect book for undergraduate students in nursing and public health programs."

Every year since 1995, communities across the United States have observed the first week of April as National Public Health Week (NPHW) - a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving the public’s health.
Organized by the American Public Health Association (APHA) , NPHW is a national campaign that strives to educate the public, policymakers and practitioners about issues related to that year’s theme. This year, APHA will continue its broad vision to make America the healthiest nation in one generation by addressing the importance of prevention and wellness through the theme "A Healthier America Begins Today: Join the Movement".
