The American Public Health Association holds its 125th annual meeting in Chicago this week with many of the Association’s key concerns — from environmental and children’s health to disease control and food safety — facing serious challenges. In fact, the very notion of a public health is under severe attack in this age of privatization and globalization.

Guest:

  • Quentin Young, the incoming president of the American Public Health Association, which is holding its 125th annual meeting in Chicago this week. He is a clinical professor of preventive medicine at the University of Illinois Medical School and the national coordinator of Physicians for a National Health Program. For ten years he was the chair of medicine at Cook County Hospital.
