The American Public Health Association (APHA) has launched a new video that answers the question, “Does public health provide a return on investment (ROI)?” This video shows how public health surrounds us and has an impact in all aspects of our lives, underscoring the need to protect and prioritize public health funding.

Public Health is the science and art of protecting and improving the health of communities through education, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and research for disease and injury prevention. Public health professionals analyze how genetics, personal choices, and the environment affect health in order to develop programs that protect the health of your family and community.
