We know health starts—long before illness—in our homes, communities, schools and jobs. But we devote most attention to medications and healthcare delivery. The Stanford Prevention Research Center is announcing the start of a new “Health 4 America” fellows program, whose goal is to train prevention experts to address health in  families, neighborhoods, schools, communities and the workplace… Many students interested in public health sign up for programs like Teach for America, or complete a public health master’s degree after college. But a persistent dilemma with these programs is that they’re either purely experiential (throwing you into the deep end without a lot of tools) or entirely classroom-based (throwing you into the slumber of statistics classes all day long, with no practicum in sight).
