Public Health Professional (MPH)

Public Health Professionals focus on preventing disease and injury by promoting healthy lifestyles. They implement educational programs, develop policies, administer services, conduct research, and regulate health systems to achieve these goals. The public health field confronts national and global health issues, controls infectious disease, and reduces environmental hazards, violence, and injury. In the past century, public health initiatives have improved lives worldwide including increasing life expectancy by almost 30 years in the United States.
