We aim to improve the health of all populations, especially those most vulnerable, by producing world-class public health scholarship, forging strong community partnerships, and educating the next generation of diverse public health leaders.
The mission of the MPH program is to preserve and enhance the health and well being of human populations by preparing graduates in the knowledge, skill, and analytic capabilities required to:
- Advance the principles and practice of public health;
- Enter public health careers at the local, state, and national levels with the skills necessary to assume leadership roles; and
- Uphold and foster an ethic of social responsibility which recognizes the value of equal opportunity for health and well being among all and which respects individual, family and community values.
The focus of this mission is the promotion of physical and mental health, and prevention of disease and disability, through the development of new knowledge relevant to public health, the teaching and application of that knowledge, and the translation of data and research findings into information to be used in public health policy and practice.
The key values of the Brown MPH Program are to preserve and enhance the health and well being of human populations by integrating knowledge, skills and data to advance public health.
