Welcome to PUBH 209 – Fall 2017!

As you know if you’ve reviewed the course syllabus, grading rubric, and “Note” on points, grading, and learning, I expect that (through exploring this content) YOU will become engaged, perhaps a bit enraged, and ready to take on the world of consumer health issues. This material, to me, is among the most fascinating and concerning in public health – and it’s also quite poorly addressed. Because we honestly do not know what to do about the societal issues we face that are, when it comes down to it, our own fault. Yep, I said it. We’re the cause, ultimately, as a society, of our own issues. And now we have to face them as individuals and as a nation and a world.

Start considering the breadth and depth right now. Get a bit confused, concerned, annoyed, or what have you, and then go take a nice bath, a walk, a breath. Share a meal with someone you care about, pat a puppy, read a good book, or watch a stupid TV show. Then come back to this stuff in the morning. I can’t promise you’ll enjoy every minute, but I bet you’ll be interested most minutes… Again, welcome. I’m so glad to have you in this class with me, with each other, and with the world. This quarter. “See” you very soon. –Dr. P
