University of Maryland

School of Public Health

Public health addresses complex issues: the obesity epidemic, climate change, substance abuse, violence, aging, health disparities and much more. Students, staff, and faculty in the School of Public Health are committed to tackling these challenges, and protecting and improving the health of individuals, families, communities, and populations, locally and globally. The school’s diverse research programs aim to address the social, environmental, behavioral, and health systems factors that influence health. We partner with communities and apply research to promote health, advance health equity and create policies that will enhance health across the lifespan.
