Objects Lesson

Spittoons, smartphones and the Chevrolet Corvair… The Atlantic’s CityLab blog latched onto the unique subgroup of GHN’s 100 Objects That Shaped Public Health in a post yesterday.

We’ve had a great response to the collection of things that have affected public health in ways that are amazing (vitamin A supplements), pretty terrible (Joe Camel) and surprising (the humble paper cup).   

Thanks to all who responded so positively to our list and our new look including Tom Frieden, Michael R. Bloomberg, Christopher Rogers, Surabhi Bhatt, Glendora Meikle, Nirbhay Kumar, Masha Cemma (congrats on the PhD!), and the good folks from the American Public Health Association, American Nurses Association, Weill Cornell Medicine, and Columbia Mailman School of Public Health, to name just a few.

If you haven’t seen the list, please do check it out. And please share our free subscribe link with friends.
