Department of Public Health

Public health is, in the words of the Institute of Medicine, "What we as a society do collectively to assure the conditions in which people can be healthy.''

Public health promotes well-being, prevents disease, and addresses social determinants and emotional factors that reduce the level of healthy functioning.
