Return to Toolbox Main.
This website contains articles, slide shows, syllabi, and other
documents relevant to topics in public health and social justice.
References for most of the information contained in the slide shows can
be found in the accompanying articles. Presentations will be updated
annually. It grew out of the author's recognition that medical, and even nursing and public
health, schools tend to inadequately address the social, economic,
environmental, human rights, and cultural contributors to health and
disease. Some of the content focuses on the medical humanities and the
history of medicine. Feel free to use information from the articles and slide shows, indeed even the slides themselves, with appropriate citation.
The site's author, Martin Donohoe, is Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Community Health at
Portland State University and a hospitalist at Kaiser Permanente
Sunnyside Hospital. He serves on the Board of Advisors of Oregon
Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) and is Chief Scientific
Advisor to Oregon PSR’s Campaign for Safe Foods.
