Join Dr. Scott McPhee, Program Coordinator for Bay Path's Master of Public Health program for an online Hot Topic:  A Tale of Two Literacies: Meeting Health at the Intersection of Public Health & Clinical Medicine

Although medicine and public health share a goal of promoting the health and well-being of all people, these two disciplines historically have operated independently of one another. Although problems that stem from this separation have long been recognized, few opportunities have been developed to bring these sectors together in ways that can yield substantial and lasting improvements in the health of individuals, communities, and populations. Today’s Hot Topics program will discuss the similarities and differences between clinical medicine and public health and suggest ways to build upon each other’s strengths.
