With a career in public health, you improve public health by empowering people to prevent and manage chronic illness and disabilities in pursuit of an equitable, healthy future for all. Public health professionals examine and propose solutions to the health challenges facing specific populations. Serving as a link between communities, governments, and medical professionals, public health specialists must be well-versed in theory, science, sociology, and public policy.

Professionals working within the public health field have a variety of responsibilities, dependent on their education level. From working within small communities or towns to advancing global public health and wellness, the opportunities are vast.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve health in the community through collaborative research and community service. We aim to produce future practitioners who promote healthy populations by providing experiential learning opportunities through community engagement.
