Public health research focuses on improving the health and happiness of entire communities. It involves studying health issues that affect large groups of people, not just individuals. This research spans many areas, including preventing diseases, promoting health, and ensuring everyone has access to quality healthcare.

Public health experts use data to identify health trends, understand risks, and create plans that help everyone live healthier lives. Their work supports policies and programs aimed at preventing diseases, encouraging healthy choices, and providing equal healthcare opportunities.

Bridging the Research-Application Divide

Public health research is crucial, but it often takes a long time for new discoveries to be used in real life—about 17 years on average. Only about 14% of research findings reach the people who need them most. This delay affects everyone, from students to healthcare providers to patients who miss out on newer treatments because healthcare providers might not be aware of them.

Our Mission

At This Week in Public Health, we aim to make every encounter with science exciting and inspiring. With constant new research, it can be tough to stay current. We simplify and highlight important studies for you, turning complex information into engaging and inspiring insights. We’re here to make your journey through science enlightening and continuously captivating.

Making Science Accessible

The gap between scientific research and its application is mainly due to the complexity and inaccessibility of scientific papers. We help close this gap by offering free, easy-to-understand updates, making you a knowledgeable member of the health community. Our goal is to make the latest public health research easy to access and ready to use right away.

Special Projects

We also take on commissioned projects for specialized needs. For example, we’ve been able to apply our algorithms to grant applications, client interviews, blog posts, and more. If you are looking to make meaning of large amounts of text-based data, we can help you.
