Abstract

Significant reductions in health disparities and morbidity and mortality in general have produced world populations with increased high-quality longevity. These achievements have been led by epidemiologists through both research and public health intervention. Professional education, community public health practice, and epidemiologic research are integrated in new ways that continue to improve health and maintain the priority for health promotion in public health practice and health care around the world.
