are quite a few differences between medicine and public health.
Medicine is primarily focused on individual patients, emphasizing on
diagnosing and treating diseases (Harvard, 2016). Medicine is also
organized by specific specializations. One specialization is the organ
systems and how they function. Another is the type of patient groups,
whether it was geriatrics, pediatrics, obstetrics, etc. There is also
technical skills such as using radiology, dermatology, or surgery.
Public health on the other hand primarily focuses on the population with
an emphasis on disease prevention and promotion of health within an
entire community (Harvard, 2016). They also find ways to prevent the
spread of diseases and protect the environment from hazards. The one way
that public health has impacted my life is the quarantine orders and
restricted travel that have occurred since the outbreak of COVID-19. The
second way is the promotion of healthy lifestyles as I am losing my
postnatal weight. The final way it has impacted my life is the
importance of wearing seatbelts and correctly using car seats for my
children to reduce injury or death.References:Harvard. (2016, April 7). Public Health and Medicine.

Adjust automatic marking as read settingGood afternoon everyone,For
this weeks discussion topic we are asked to explain the difference
between medicine and public health. Think about the ways public health
affects us and list at least three ways it impacts our daily life.
According to American Public Health Association (2017) “Public health
promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where
they live, learn, work and play. While a doctor treats people who are
sick, those of us working in public health try to prevent people from
getting sick or injured in the first place. We also promote wellness by
encouraging healthy behaviors” (p. 1). When a patient is seen by a
medical provider they are individually seen for their medical condition.
While public health prevent the public from becoming patients and
improve their quality of life. The three ways that public health can
effect our daily lives are people not adhering to the public health
rules during this epidemic. First by wearing a mask to stop the spread
of the virus, maintaining social distancing, properly washing hands to
prevent infection, and being up to date on all vaccinations. If these
recommendations are performed by the public this would not impact our
daily life. Thank youReference List: American Public Health Association. (2017). What is public health? Retrieved from
