The role of public health can often go unseen by the general public—until there's a crisis. What can we do to change this perception? How can the field better lift up successes, demonstrate value to communities, and make the case to invest in what works?

PHI President and CEO Dr. Mary Pittman and Dr. Linda Rudolph, director of our Center for Climate Change and Health, sat down with Dr. Lenoir of KPFA's About Health to explore this and more. They discuss PHI's impact over the last 50+ years, explore today's most pressing public health issues—including opioid use and climate change—and dig in to the importance of focusing on health equity within public health efforts.
