Public Health

Want to learn about how to track disease outbreaks, prevent injuries and shed light on why some of us are more likely to suffer from poor health than others?

The many facets of public health include speaking out for laws that promote a better quality of life for all and spreading the word about ways to stay healthy and giving science-based solutions to problems.

Public health saves money, improves our quality of life, helps children thrive and reduces human suffering.
