At the School of Public Health, we leave no stone unturned as we tackle the world’s most critical public health problems.
Our faculty, staff, and students bring innovative thinking and concrete action to emerging and persistent challenges, including structural racism, gun violence, our expanding aging population, and a changing climate.
We work across disciplines and with local, national, and international colleagues to make real and lasting change — from conducting the first Ebola vaccine trial in West Africa and leading the largest global HIV/AIDS treatment study, to confronting environmental pollutants in rural India and hunger in the U.S., our goal is to give everyone the chance for a healthy life.
