MPH Faculty

The MPH faculty is comprised of researchers and practitioners with a wide array of experience. This includes working within large public health agencies (e.g. county and state health departments, community-based organizations), administering grant-funded public health projects, and the like. This experience is brought into the classroom where our faculty expertise and scholarly work across a variety of areas.
