Significant Figures in Public Health
After completing your Reading, download a copy of the Approved Public Health Figures. Then, look over Table 1-1 “Public Health Eras” in Chapter 1 of the textbook and choose a public health figure.
First, explain what is meant by the term epidemiological transition. Give a brief overview of the public health figure you chose and the work they did in public health. Which public health era did they work in and what challenges did they face? How is the world still benefiting from your chosen public health figure’s work? Finally, describe the role your public health figure played in epidemiological transition during their era.
