Become part of our vision for a healthier tomorrow by investing in the College of Public Health. Our students are now managing healthcare systems, serving in public health departments. They are boots on the ground fighting the drug epidemic, studying the aging process, as well as tracking and helping put in place practices to fight the current and future pandemics. They are our key to building healthier communities. Your gift makes a difference!
