Making discoveries that matter

Whether we're working on a project that helps us better understand how global warming will affect your health, developing a national diabetes surveillance system or investigating the consequences of high nurse turnover, our research makes a direct impact on your well-being.  

Our research takes a holistic approach to applied health research by addressing issues relevant to individuals, their community and the population as a whole. And our faculty members make a difference in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease by supporting and leading local, regional and national research studies.

At the Department of Community Health and Epidemiology, we don't just react—we look ahead, taking a proactive approach to research in community health.
