It's been called "the science and art of preventing disease," and "the science of improving the health of people and their communities." Public health has other definitions, too, and the current pandemic just might push public health to front of the scientific field, overshadowing even our ongoing tussle over the future of individual health care in America. Ellyn Mulcahy is an associate professor in the Department of Diagnostic Medicine & Pathobiology at Kansas State University, and Elaine Johannes is an associate professor in the College of Health and Human Sciences, and a K-State Research and Extension specialist in family and youth development. Both serve on the Kansas Public Health Systems Group. They'll share insight into what Kansas and K-State Research and Extension are doing to promote public health... and discuss the Kansas citizen who was a very early advocate of public health.

  • Elaine Johannes is an associate professor in the College of Health and Human Sciences, and a K-State Research and Extension specialist in family and youth development.
