THINK. Now is the time.
SPH45 will feature the leading-edge research of the School. Each month, we will highlight a department, center, or one of our cross-cutting strategic research directions from our newly updated BUSPH Strategic Map. Areas of research excellence include: cities and health; climate, the planet, and health; health inequities; infectious diseases; and mental and behavioral health. idea hub builds collaborations between external partners and our public health experts to solve the world’s most challenging public health problems.
TEACH. Now is the time.
BUSPH leads in educational excellence and innovation in teaching public health. We aim to teach in a way that is authentic, inclusive, flexible, ongoing, and reflective of changes in the health of the population. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated our widespread use of educational technology, equitable and inclusive pedagogy for faculty and students, and cohesive, science-based curricula that combine foundational learning and practical training. We will continue to combine foundational learning and practical training through our degree-granting programs and lifelong learning through Population Health Exchange.
DO. Now is the time.
BUSPH is committed to moving scholarship into practice and influencing real world change. Aiming to change the conversation on public health, BUSPH is renaming its Signature Program Series to Public Health Conversations. Attended by thousands of people annually, these programs engage in conversations on pressing societal issues, elevating the mission of BUSPH and that of public health as a whole. We also are actively engaged in the work of translating the science through our Public Health Post publication, and are actively engaged in making change happen in the world through the activities of our Activist Lab that catalyze collaborations among students, faculty, staff, alums, and community members.
We are in a pivotal moment in the world and in the School’s 45-year history. Our ongoing mission as a leading school of public health is to engage with the foundational causes of health, with a particular focus on the marginalized and vulnerable, with the goal of improving the health of all populations.
Now is the time to invest in emerging research, scholarship, and practice. Join alumni, faculty, friends, staff, and students to advance innovative science, prepare the next generation of public health leaders, and build partnerships that can create health in our local and global communities.
