Health and Society
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     A great deal of attention is given to how an individual needs to promote his or her own good health. This always has and always will be essential. Society also plays an important role in health. Public health is the protection and improvement of the health of people in a society. Most communities address health problems in four ways - medical advances, technology, public policy, and education.
 
2     Through medical research, there are many advances in information and treatment related to health issues all the time. For example, diabetes is a serious disease. In a diabetic's body, the body can't get glucose, or sugar, from the blood. Diabetics must constantly test their blood sugar level, monitor what they eat, and often give themselves insulin shots. Scientists are working on an implanted insulin pump to monitor and control blood sugar, thereby eliminating the need for daily insulin shots.
 
3     Technology is another way society addresses health problems. Computers and lasers are among the products meant to help people. A glucose meter helps diabetics test their sugar levels at home.
