Staff Report:

Jones and Bartlett Learning has announced the publication of Global Population Health: A Primer by author Richard Skolnik of Los Alamos.

Global Population Health is designed to provide a brief overview of global health to a wide range of health administration and clinical audiences.

Beginning with a concise explanation of the importance of global health, this brief text moves on to examine many of the most important global health issues and their economic and social consequences. It then discusses some of the steps that can be taken to address these concerns in cost-effective, fair, doable, and sustainable ways. 

Skolnik also is the author of the very widely used Global Health 101, Fourth Edition, a comprehensive introduction to global health aimed largely at university undergraduates. As he did with Global Health 101, Skolnik will be donating copies of his new book to the Mesa and Los Alamos High School libraries.
