Public health specialists Dr. Paul Carson and Dr. Paul Cieslak give an inside look at what it’s like to work in public health, including why they chose the field, the most rewarding and most difficult aspects of their work, the biggest misconceptions, and why public health should be on every Catholic’s radar.

Top 3 Takeaways:

  1. Public health doctors are cool. They have the chance to impact health in a way that’s greater than any other medical specialty.
  2. There’s a lot of great public health victories, and sometimes they’re so great we don’t notice them.
  3. We need authentically Catholic doctors to pursue public health careers.
