Widely quoted throughout the industry, Principles of Public Health Practice is written by nationally recognized experts in their fields, including a foreword by C. Everett Koop. Extremely well-referenced, this book is essential for anyone involved in the management or provision of public health systems today and into the future. The third edition emphasizes evidence-based practice and the science that underscores what is currently known about effective public health practice. Additionally, the content is closely correlated with the 10 essential public health services to reflect the accepted definition of public health and illustrate the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary for the broad practice of public health.
