2021 PUBLIC HEALTH STORIES #46

Curated public health stories for this week from my reading shelf for Week 46 of 2021.

I.

A set of open-source digital tools to empower public health teams to boost the efficiency of outreach and support services developed by https://preventepidemics.org/. These can be easily translated for use for other health emergencies as well.

II.

A compelling case for “You Should Get a Booster Now” by Dr Ashish Jha

“The science is clear: People should go get a booster. America should banish any confusion on the subject.”

III.


“Why wearables could mean the doctor no longer knows best”

“As these products go mainstream, we could be getting closer to the prediction of a decade ago from American physician Eric Topol: “The digitisation of human beings will make a parody out of ‘doctor knows best’.””
