The determinants and consequences of global changes profoundly shape population health. Many of these changes have long been underway, including climate change, food systems transformations, infectious disease pandemics, and population changes such as migration, urbanization and aging.
Our faculty and students conduct research that emphasizes the social determinants of health—how factors like socioeconomic status, race and place determine susceptibility to certain diseases and conditions—and how to use this knowledge to help communities implement changes that foster equality and social justice.
Unlocking the truth behind infectious disease pandemics, social determinants of health, antibiotic resistance and other public health concerns often requires harnessing big data and technological innovation.
