Workers dedicated to public health

April 9, 2011
The Marietta Times

April 4 through 8 was designated as National Public Health Week. The U.S. English dictionary defines public health as "the general health of a community and the practice and study of ways to preserve and improve it." It further states that public health includes health education, sanitation, control of diseases, and regulation of pollution. The American Heritage Dictionary gives a similar definition, "the science and practice of protecting and improving the health of a community, as by preventive medicine, health education, control of communicable diseases, application of sanitary measures, and monitoring of environmental hazards."
