The Wide World of Public Health
I hope to engage with JPHMP Direct readers around some of the core questions of our field, and understand how systems research and data collected in other sectors for other reasons can bear on how we do the important current and “futuring” in work of our field. To me, that means that we need to continue to have debate and discussion with data, and also understand the lived experiences and sentiments of people in practice. I hope to feature voices of students in practice so that their voices help move forward the conversation about how our field proceeds, and where we might focus our efforts, in the coming years.
