About the Magazine

Public Health is published by the Rollins School of Public Health, a component of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center of Emory University. 

On the Cover: Following the earthquake in Haiti, RSPH student Jean Cadet volunteered to work there, not once, but twice. Emory photographer Bryan Meltz accompanied him on his second trip to work with the Haiti Humanitarian Fund, a faith-based organization. Meltz's cover photo shows Cadet in the medical clinic in the town of Los Palis in central Haiti. Several of Meltz's photos are featured in "Stories from Haiti".
