Dean's Welcome, Who We Are, Public Health in Action
A Message from Dean Cheryl Healton
It has been said that New York City is “where the future comes to audition.” Unbound by tradition, and much like the innovative and enterprising city in which our home campus resides, our school seeks to reinvent the public health paradigm by applying entrepreneurial approaches to public health crises.
Who We Are
We employ a nontraditional, inter-disciplinary model to improve health worldwide through a unique blend of global public health studies, research and practice. Innovation is at the core of our ambitious approach, thinking and teaching.
Public Health Careers in Action
Our alumni are working in 44 countries around the world with local health departments, not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations, ministries of health, and multilateral agencies like the United Nations.

Barriers to Vaccine Access
Research shows that vaccine hesitancy among people of color is declining, though structural barriers persist. As Melody Goodman told MarketWatch, “We talk about Black communities being hesitant, but I think they have a healthy level of skepticism of a system that has treated them poorly historically."
Is it Too Soon?
Danielle Ompad tells City & State New York the city could successfully reopen if New Yorkers continue to wear masks and social distance, especially if they’re not vaccinated. However, many people may not be willing to continue following guidelines due to pandemic fatigue even though the virus is still evolving.

Mary Holiman (President) and Ciara Freeman (Vice President) are two MPH students who serve as leaders of the Black Women’s Health Collective (BWHC). The mission of BWHC is to support and encourage the leadership of Black women in public health while highlighting the health experiences of black women and girls globally. The club is able to do this with programming throughout the year by connecting Black women students and professionals in Public Health, sharing opportunities, and fostering a meaningful space of community and solidarity on NYU’s Campus. In this episode, Ciara and Mary give me insight into the club’s purpose and mission, as well as some events the organization has been holding this academic year such as their recent “Succeeding while Black” event and how the club has opened doors for them- Mary shares a defining internship experience she had. You can keep up with the organization on Instagram (@nyu_bwhc) and by subscribing to their newsletter (email@example.com). Mary (@queenmvh) and Ciara (@ciarafreeman_) have also made themselves available as a resource or point of contact on Instagram.

Public Health Comes to 708 Broadway
Built in 1896 in the Northern Renaissance style, 708 Broadway has long been at the center of one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in New York City. Now part of the NoHo Historic District, it has undergone numerous transformations over the decades, the last of which will be the construction of the new home for the NYU School of Global Public Health.
