Uncomfortable Conversations about the Public's Health

Michael Stein and Sandro Galea

  • A collection of essays and data illustrations, authored and assembled by two of America's leading physicians and public health experts, on what matters in American health
  • Renders everyday matters of American life -- like school, housing, police, even cell phones -- as greater determinants of health than medicine and healthcare
  • An essential primer for understanding the factors that underlie health in America, which are not typically discussed in contemporary healthcare conversations
