A major objective of the School of Public Health is to conduct research of relevance to the community with a focus on translating research into practice. Through engaged and participatory research, faculty and students identify evidence-based, sustainable approaches to health interventions, health services, and health policy. We are committed to improving health outcomes by focusing on health equity issues such as social and environmental justice policies and applied population-based research in obesity, cardiovascular disease, tobacco use, cancer prevention, health promotion, behavioral risk assessment, and preventable health care utilization.
