SAFETY LESSONS FROM THE MORGUE. But here’s a key bit: “When Baker started her career in the 1960s, public health was still mostly about preventing disease, not injury.”

I’m not saying that safety research is bad, but I think public health’s shift away from disease is (1) a mistake, since there are a lot of disease issues out there; and (2) driven more by internal and external politics than anything else.
