Abstract

For those of us who practice, administer, research, study, or teach public health, two aspects of the field inspire and motivate us-the importance of public health measures to the well being os society and the constantly evolving nature of public health issues. Besides traditional public health concerns such as sanitation, environmental health, and infectious diseases, contemporary public health also focuses on - among other things - newly emerging pathogens, bioterriorism, and disaster response.

Keywords: public health, ethics, public health genetics, health information technology, HIT
