Population Medicine
Back in simpler times, doctors took care of their patients one visit at a time. Rarely did they feel compelled to pay much attention to the larger communities to which their patients belonged. That was left to public health professionals, if they existed.

Emerging Perspectives on Learning, Teaching, and Technology
I started this book in 2001 with a core group of doctoral students. The initial version included 12 chapters with no animations and very few images.

It has been in HTML until May 2007 when we converted it to this Wiki. I
