Students in a graduate-level class watch a professor at a digital display. At the UAB School of Public Health, we aspire to fulfill the great promise of the discipline of public health: to protect and improve the health, safety, and well-being of all. We accomplish this through our cutting-edge research, our ongoing engagement in public health practice, and most importantly through our commitment to training the next generation of public health professionals.

Our students go on to work in their communities, in healthcare settings, or for agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the World Health Organization — anywhere broad knowledge of the biological, environmental, social, and behavioral influences on health is needed.
