About This Image

Cover of the July 2010 issue

This issue of Preventing Chronic Disease is the first in a series of 3 that includes papers from the Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH) project. The first set of papers explores the different metrics for evaluating population health. The cover for this issue combines, in the form of a bar chart, images that illustrate population and indicators that can be used to measure health. The treatment of the image is based on the Works Progress Administration (WPA) posters of the 1930s, in which the public were given friendly, clear instruction on health issues such as what foods to eat each day for good nutrition, how often and for what symptoms to see a doctor, efficient ways to conserve resources, and so on. The symbolism in these posters was often simple, limited-color screenprints of iconographic objects. The MATCH articles in this issue offer insights and suggestions on important metrics to use in evaluating population health.
