Abstract

In this chapter we discuss the importance of community in public health science and practice. Community is —first and foremost— place. The science of place and its implication for health has made major strides over the past decade. The first and second international conferences on health geographics marked an achievement in that development. The argument in this chapter draws out the implication of place and community for public health science and practice.
