New eBook: A Story of Health preview (pdf)
A Story of Health is the first installment of a new eBook on how to promote health and prevent disease. The book uses a series of case vignettes to highlight how our environments – the natural, built, chemical, food, economic, and social environments – affect our health across the lifespan and how these different environments interact with genetics and each other to influence health. The book explores the potential environmental causes of common diseases and conditions such as asthma, developmental disabilities, cancer, infertility, diabetes, and cognitive decline and how to prevent them and promote health by shaping the environments where we live, eat, work, play, pray, volunteer, gather and socialize. Its intended audience includes clinicians, health advocates and policy makers. Free continuing education credits for health professionals is available. Download the A Story of Health e-book.
