Dear Friends and Colleagues
Slide Shows on Public Health and Social Justice Website Updated for Spring, 2017
The major (starred, *) Powerpoint slide shows on the Public Health and Social Justice have all just been updated to include the most recently available research and policy information. They range in length from 50 slides to 766 slides (yes, seven hundred sixty six, for the Environmental Degradation and Social Injustice Powerpoint). All slide shows are open access, meaning that anyone can use all or part of one, with appropriate citation. See http://www.publichealthandsocialjustice.org or http://www.phsj.org.
Topic areas are listed below. Some have much more content than others, so submissions are always welcome and can be sent to email@example.com Below the topic areas are direct links to some of the most popular slide shows and videos.
You can also order a copy of the Public Health and Social Justice Reader (2013, Jossey Bass/Wiley) through the website at http://phsj.org/public-health-and-social-justice-reader/ – Click for table of contents, endorsements, and use discount code MPH20 to use to receive 20% off.
Note that all information in the slideshows comes from real, not “alternative” facts, and is culled from peer-reviewed journals, respected news organizations (e.g., AP, Reuters, BBC) and periodicals (e.g., Harpers, New Yorker, National Geographic, Smithsonian, etc.). Note that I have not included developments from the early days of the Trump administration, as it is hard to keep up with the moment-to-moment dismantling of human rights and the Constitution coming from this narcissistic, sociopathic, temperamental, xenophobic, racist, misogynistic, ecocidal, profiteering, anti-science, war-mongering pseudo-Christian and acknowledged perpetrator of sexual assault, and his amoral, complicit to actively-involved toadies, who lack basic human qualities like empathy. Those committed to social justice, human and environmental health, and world peace should resist the dictatorial urges of this demagogue at every turn.
The website and I have no disclosures, I/it receive(s) no external funds, and I have not made any money off the book…..the site is a labor of love and my goal is to just to get the word out and hopefully help educate and motivate others.
