  1. The changes in the MPH curriculum is a direction that will target the challenges facing public health. I have a background as a wellness nurse who recently was pursuing a degree in public health, at another university. After 21 credit hours of public health courses completed, the overall problems were barely emphasized but the statistical analysis of the problems were. For example, a state with one of the highest obesity problems in the nation was granted $19 million dollars to research the cause of obesity in their state. The same state is funding weight loss surgeries for individuals who can not afford gastric weight loss surgery. Seemingly, funding research is a step in the right direction but including health communication and health behavior majors in public health programs would be a significant benefit.Understanding why health is not a priority for some people is paramount in assisting them to make health changes.

  2. Why not make available to BUSPH graduates, sans catalogues, the new MPH curriculum in abbreviated form via email ? Information that actually lists and describes the courses/concentrations available to current students.It would be interesting to compare the differences between the present and previous programs. Thank you.
