The Sparkman Center for Global Health directs its teaching, mentoring, and research toward understanding the root causes of health disparities and creating sustainable quality of life improvements that reach across political, social and geographic boundaries.
An important part of the programs, and one that differentiates it from traditional public health, is the understanding that major health challenges stem from many factors well outside of biological disease- ecological, cultural, institutional, historical, evolutionary, social and technological. Any effective sustainable solutions to our most pressing global health challenges will need to take all of these factors into account, including the complex ways in which they relate to each other.
