Reading Lists

We have looked at the core public health competencies and the gaps identified by professionals in the field to develop diverse sets of reading lists. The interns work hard to balance temporality and significance, so lists will include articles published in the last three years, with the exception of seminal articles. We have worked hard to develop topic-based lists, annotated lists, and course-specific lists. Please enjoy and share!
