Health is primary

· Volume 5 Issue 3

Family and community medicine provide primary and fundamental care for individuals and population. This issue of Family Medicine and Community Health has assembled reports addressing a mix of work encountered by primary care physicians in their daily practice, ranging from smoking cessation, mental health, violence, aging and obstructive sleep apnea to management of celiac disease. The articles by Dr. Sheng Liu and Dr. Geetah Mani are particularly enlightening and remind us of the critical role that social culture plays in the health of the general population and the delivery of primary care to our patients.
