Now in its eighth edition, Community and Population Health provides a comprehensive introduction to the four areas of community health - Preventative Medicine, Public Health, School Health, and Self-care. Reflecting the recent emergence of population health in the community health field, Community and Population Health represents the concept that many populations of concern in health programs are not solely defined by geographic location. This revision continues to present information within a problem-solving framework as exemplified in the issue boxes and case studies throughout the text.
