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.
This year's multi-disciplinary offering of summer courses will have a unique focus on COVID-19, encouraging students to open their mind and learn how to apply their skills to benefit the well-being of various populations around the world.
