About Us

The Methods Section is a podcast and interactive web platform for public health news. We look at the newest, coolest, most innovative ways of approaching pressing public health problems, from gun violence to flu epidemic. We’re highlighting the ideas and programs – big and small – shaping the future of the field. What’s working? What’s not? What have we learned? To find out, we talk to researchers, students, physicians, big thinkers, and community members. We want to take public health news to the next level by inviting you to collaborate, volunteer, comment or donate in response to our stories.
