As you most likely know, 2016 is the Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Centennial Year. To cap off our final celebrations, the school put together a list of 100 items that helped shape Public Health. Expecting to find 100 items that have improved public health I was surprised to find the “gun” and the “cigarette” included. Indeed, the 100 items influenced the field of Public Health, not necessarily improved the public’s health.
Of the 100 items selected, the following nine items directly relate to research performed at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
As a personal favorite, and being from Kansas, I find it’s also important to share that the fly swatter made the list, and we have Kansas to thank for its invention. To see the other 90 items and why they made the 100 items list, read the full article on Global Health Now.
