Public health posts: Public health posts are opinion pieces about the pressing public health issues which affect us all.

These posts were written by College of Population Health students in the Mental Health Epidemiology class but we welcome submission from any faculty or student members of our COPH community. The opinions here are the authors’ alone and do not necessarily reflect the views of either the COPH or the University of New Mexico.
