Population-Based Public Health Clinical Manual: The Henry Street Model for Nurses is a dazzling adventure through the foundational concepts and processes of community/population health practice. The chapters are brilliantly arranged for ease of navigation with key points, evidentiary examples and applications, and chapter activities. Most importantly, the authors prepare student learners not only to embrace the societal challenges and social determinants impacting population health—including structural racism, social justice, and health equity—but to advocate for change and develop policies that directly impact these injustices. A significant work in preparing the next generation of community/population health nursing leaders!
