This website contains articles, slide shows, syllabi, and other documents relevant to topics in public health and social justice. References for much of the information contained in the slide shows can be found in the accompanying articles. Presentations are updated every 6-12 months (Note: dates in link addresses refer to dates of creation of original versions, not dates of most recent updates). All information comes from real, not “alternative” facts, and is culled from peer-reviewed journals (scientific/medical/public health/nursing), respected news organizations (e.g., AP, Reuters, BBC) and periodicals (e.g., Harpers, New Yorker, National Geographic, Smithsonian, etc.).
Note: For the early 2017 update, I have not included developments from the early days of the Trump administration, as it is hard to keep up with the moment-to-moment dismantling of human rights and the Constitution coming from this narcissistic, sociopathic, temperamental, xenophobic, racist, misogynistic, ecocidal, profiteering, anti-science, war-mongering pseudo-Christian and acknowledged perpetrator of sexual assault, and his amoral, complicit to actively-involved toadies, who lack basic human qualities like empathy. All I can say is that those committed to social justice, human and environmental health, and world peace continue to resist the dictatorial urges of this demagogue at every turn.
The site is aimed at students, educators, and the general public. It addresses the social, economic, environmental, human rights, and cultural contributors to health and illness. Some of the content focuses on the medical humanities and the history of medicine.
All slide shows are open-access. Feel free to use information from the articles and slide shows, indeed even the slides themselves, with appropriate citation.
Starred (*) slide shows and articles are what I consider my own most comprehensive postings in a given area. Material from other contributors is not starred, which does not imply that such material is less valuable and/or important, but I am not in a position to judge what others feel qualifies as their most valuable and/or important work. On many pages, submissions from other contributors are the most interesting, and I encourage you to explore as many selections as possible.
Submissions welcome. Please email me any articles, slide shows, or links you would be willing to share, along with comments, corrections, and suggestions. Please include name, affiliation(s), and full contact information, including address, phone number, and e-mail.
