Podcast 226: What we need to talk about when we talk about health

(No Ratings Yet)

Length: 18 minutes

Sandro Galea, dean of Boston University’s School of Public Health, has written a new book. It’s called “Well: What we need to talk about when we talk about health,” and it’s the centerpiece of our discussion.

Dr. Galea, who trained as an emergency physician, believes that health is a public good and thus worthy of public investment in the things that will promote health in the future, like public education, breathable air, drinkable water, and the like.

The book is available through Amazon or your local bookseller. It’s published by Oxford University Press.
