Prevention Diaries

The Practice and Pursuit of Health for All

Larry Cohen

  • A personal but scientifically grounded case for prevention as our most important tool in both health and social change
  • Builds on recent research that finds environment accounts for 70% of individual health and well-being — in short, that where we live defines how we live
  • Chapters on violence, racial and economic inequity, health care reform, food, and the built environment all relevant to current conversations
  • First-person vignettes make the arguments come alive, linking them to contemporary movements related to class, race, and social access
  • Argues for health as a social cause and individual right
