THE PUBLIC HEALTH PARADIGM
At the College of Global Public Health at New York University , we are preparing the next generation of public health pioneers with the critical thinking skills, acumen and entrepreneurial approaches necessary to reinvent the public health paradigm.
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 college seeks to reinvent the public health paradigm by applying entrepreneurial approaches to public health crises.
