Our Faculty & Staff

Request Info

We are an academic center of excellence that works to improve the health of the public – one community at a time – through research, education, and service. We promote an environment of learning and inquiry, stressing the scientific method as a way of building knowledge about common pathways that affect health.

Our faculty ask provocative questions that challenge the status quo, build new models to test, and encourage students to conceive innovative ways to advance the field and bring effective solutions to communities that need them.

Our highly qualified, experienced and diverse faculty maintain an intimate, hands-on and personal approach. In addition, we combine research and training with service and interventions to translate our discoveries into policy and practice.
