Publisher's Announcement

Now in its eighth successful edition, this respected text bears a new name. 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 defined solely by geographic location.

Also new to the eighth edition, end-of-chapter WebLinks list relevant sites on the World Wide Web. This new resource provides you with up-to-the-minute information and is a great tool for further study and research.


This edition provides students with comprehensive understanding of health in communities and
populations. Information on health strategies --preventive medicine, public health, school health,
and self-care--provides students with a broad perspective on health issues and ways to resolve
them, including issues unresolved of child abuse, HIV-AIDS, drug abuse, and alcoholism.   In the pages
that follow, new information appearing in the scientific literature and in the popular press since the
8th edition went to press is included.
