2012 Outstanding Academic Title, Choice Magazine

Public Health and Aging was published to critical acclaim almost fifteen years ago. Much has changed in public health since then. Thomas R. Prohaska, Lynda A. Anderson, and Robert H. Binstock now offer a completely new and updated overview of the field in Public Health for an Aging Society.

This comprehensive survey discusses research, policy, and practice; managing and preventing diseases; promoting mental and physical health; and maintaining quality of life for an aging society. The fields of public health and aging have grown increasingly complex. Given the interdependency of issues posed by an aging society, the editors of this volume expand the traditional scope and treatments of public health and aging by adopting a social-ecological perspective that incorporates individual, family, community, societal, and environmental concerns. Chapters address the most critical public health issues facing an aging society, including Medicare and family caregiving, and introduce many new and emerging concepts, such as emergency preparedness, technology in aging, translational research, genomics, and environmental influences on health and health practices.

The emergence of an aging society in the United States has far-reaching consequences for every generation. This book provides the latest information and future directions for the public health of this growing population. Students and practitioners will find Public Health for an Aging Society an invaluable resource both in the workplace and the classroom.

Review:

"This is an essential, timely, well-referenced, and thorough update of the subjects covered in Public Health and Aging."

(Choice)

"I would like to recommend it for all pre-entry health practice and policy courses... at the very least it should be a reference text."

(Rhonda Nay Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health)

"An extremely well-written, well-researched, and thorough book, with each topic written by experts. It will be extremely useful to researchers, faculty, practitioners, and students alike."

(Sarah J. Olson Health Promotion Practice)

"Public Health for an Aging Society is a highly readable volume that captures the essence of public health, introduces the reader to current aging-related challenges, provides direction for addressing those challenges, and offers a glimpse of things to come. After finishing this volume, even the more seasoned among us are likely to have learned something new, to have expanded the way they think about an issue or two, and may even find that their enthusiasm for what we do in public health has been reignited."

(Sara J. McLaughlin Gerontologist)

"A current, essential read; a primer for the scholar interested in research and policy setting as they affect the aging individual within a societal framework for public health... Comprehensive, well referenced, and presents a gestalt perspective that illuminates the aged within a public-health framework... Public Health for an Aging Society is a valuable read for academicians, researchers, clinicians, and policy makers. It is also valuable for each and every one of us as we move through life and become aware of this growing vulnerable population that needs our assistance for safety and security."

(Julia A. Greenawalt Activities, Adaptation and Aging)
