9780974968803: Saving Lives Millions at a Time

Saving Lives Millions at a Time tells the story of public health and how the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health works every day to save lives. The boldly illustrated book surveys past accomplishments such as safe drinking water, vitamins, vaccines, and seatbelts, and reports on future successes being crafted in the School's labs and classrooms. Readers will learn about today's research on the genetic threads that make life possible, the cellular battlefields where pathogenic enemies are discovered and vanquished, and the societal mores and behavior that influence health. The story of public health is full of personal stories as well. Readers will meet the professor who became an autism researcher after his son was diagnosed with the condition; the malaria researcher who knows the disease intimately because he once contracted it; the student whose brother needlessly died at age 9 because his rare heart disease went undiagnosed; and the alumna who pursued a career in environmental health after growing up in a Pennsylvania steel town with a history of deadly pollution. Book details: Hardcover, 152-pages More than 250 photographs, illustrations, charts, and maps Ten chapters on public health topics: Epidemics, Genes, Numbers, People, Mind, Fear, Behavior, Water, Food, and Air Two fold-out sections: a global map that illustrates the spread of disease and a timeline that charts historic moments in human health Ten essays by well-known writers including Richard Preston, Julia Alvarez, David Simon, Kay Jamison, Pico Iyer, and Mark Mathabane.
