The Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) has a new calendar for 2012 that highlights the contributions of members of the public health workforce to improve the health and well being of people in local communities and around the globe. Photographs in the calendar were provided by participants in the “This is Public Health” campaign as well as ASPH fellows.
The featured photograph for the month of August was submitted by Eric Lutz, PhD, assistant professor of Environmental and Occupational Health at the University of Arizona’s Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health.
The picture was taken while Dr. Lutz was in China helping with an epidemiologic study of schistosomiasis infection in rural villages outside of Jiujiang in Jiangxi Province.
"In the picture, I was sharing food with a couple of local boys who also shared local food with me," said Lutz.
