Sometime health challenges span beyond the individual. Whether a global pandemic, an obesity crisis, or regional health disparities, some problems affect entire populations.
Researchers at the School of Public Health focus on communities—creating the tools, programs, and information that lead to healthier lives. Our public health experts work with local stakeholders to understand public health challenges and develop collaborative solutions that bring lasting change.
Our scientists apply a broad range of disciplines such as human genetics, nutrition, epidemiology, and workplace safety to improve the current health and future trajectories of the communities we serve.
With six regional campuses providing expertise in challenges across Texas—from domestic violence in Dallas to food insecurity in San Antonio—and the collaborative backing of UTHealth, the School of Public Health has the infrastructure and reach to better understand and solve a myriad of population health problems.
The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the vital importance of public health research. As obstacles to health in our communities continue to arise, the urgency of a well-resourced powerhouse of public health knowledge and expertise will only grow.
With a deep well of real-world experience and cutting-edge research capabilities, we are committed to finding the solutions our communities need to make longer, healthier lives a reality. Your support of Many Faces. One Mission. can help make a difference in communities throughout Texas.
