PI founder and Executive Director Larry Cohen’s book, Prevention Diaries, gives voice to the quiet prevention solutions taking shape across the US – the people working to reinvent our healthcare system to support health and wellbeing in the first place, the communities mobilizing to no longer accept violence within homes and neighborhoods, the networks that come together to ensure everyone has access to affordable healthy food and safe places to be active. Larry says, “My goal in sharing Prevention Diaries is to make the case for prevention as our most transformational tool to drive health and social change.”
Health Affairs praised the book as being “ [An] engaging and well-documented exploration of America’s gradual, and in some cases grudging, recognition that adopting individual and community prevention-oriented policies and practices is key to promoting health and health equity, reducing injuries, and preventing violence.”
Excerpts of the book ran in Alternet and The Daily Beast, and are available on the Prevention Diaries website.
