There’s never been a more important time to talk about public health and prevention. The goal of Prevention Diaries is to make the case for prevention as a critical transformational tool to drive health and social change in our country. “I wrote Prevention Diaries to give voice to the quiet solutions taking shape across the US – the people working to reinvent our healthcare system to support health and wellbeing in the first place, the communities mobilizing to no longer accept violence within homes and neighborhoods, the networks that come together to ensure everyone has access to affordable healthy food and safe places to be active,” Larry says.
Copies of Prevention Diaries will be available for purchase at the event, and royalties will go to the Beverly Coleman Miller Fellowship fund for equity and prevention. The book’s website features discussion questions and resources for classes or book groups, as well as information on upcoming events.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
