The Trust for America’s Health looks at the nation’s public health system. Each year they publish an assessment of the soundness of our healthcare infrastructure. This year’s report was not kind. Among the topics discussed:
*Areas that are facing the greatest deficits in funding
*Dealing with elected officials who are reluctant to fund programs without immediate returns.
*Who is really on the front line: the states or the Feds
*Impact of a shrinking public health workforce
