About This Image

Cover of the April 2009 issue

This issue of Preventing Chronic Disease explores the intersection of the spheres of public health and private business. Burdensome health care costs, shrinking public health resources, and demands for more health professionals in the business sector require new and creative solutions. Public-private collaboration is a growing strategy to improve the health, prosperity, and quality of life for the American people. Combining the knowledge and expertise of public health with the resources of the business sector means that mutual health goals can be reached. This issue explores some of those partnerships and discusses frankly the challenges and benefits of this kind of collaboration.

The original artwork for this issue is influenced by the work of Saul Bass, one of the most innovative and successful graphic artists of the 20th century. In addition to his work in the 1960s and 1970s designing corporate logos for prominent companies such as United Airlines, Geffen Records, Minolta, and the YMCA, Bass also produced memorable and award-winning title sequences for a number of movies, including The Man With the Golden Arm, West Side Story, North by Northwest, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, and Goodfellas.
