After COVID: Preventing the Next Pandemic

For decades, public health experts warned of a coming pandemic and developed recommendations to prepare—yet when it arrived, the response was a catastrophic failure.

Curbing Gun Violence through Public Health

The statistics on gun violence are numbing—more than 45,000 firearms-related deaths in the US, far more than in any other wealthy country. Suicide is the leading cause of gun deaths, followed by homicides, and mass shootings are an almost-daily horror that have not lost their power to shock. Any reasoned debate about how best to curb the killing must also consider that 40 percent of all American h...

But modern cultur...
