*The schools of Public Health and Social Welfare will give copies of Prevention Diaries to the first 20 students who arrive.
The UC Berkeley Schools of Public Health and Social Welfare invite you to join Prevention Institute founder and Executive Director Larry Cohen on Tuesday, November 28, for an evening of refreshments, great conversation and selected readings from Prevention Diaries: The Practice and Pursuit of Health for All.
Prevention Diaries tells the story of a movement to remake our communities to support health and equity and reveals the unexpected (yet foreseeable) parts of daily life that shape our health. Health happens in our communities and homes, not just at the doctor's office, and many illnesses and injuries can be prevented through commonsense solutions.
From the opioid crisis to mass shootings to efforts to roll back the Affordable Care Act, there’s never been a more important time to talk about public health, prevention, and equity. Health Affairs calls Prevention Diaries “[An] engaging and well-documented exploration of America’s gradual, and in some cases grudging, recognition that adopting individual and community prevention-oriented policies and practices is key to promoting health and health equity, reducing injuries, and preventing violence.”
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 November 28!
