Your Career in Public Health…

Public Health focuses on broad community initiatives to promote health through efforts to help protect the population’s health status. At EWU, our interdisciplinary approach brings together many academic disciplines to promote a broad intellectual framework. Solving the challenges emerging in public health requires examining external influences such as the physical and social environment, as well as internal factors like personal behaviors and the genetic makeup that impacts the status of an individual’s health. These determinants of health define the role of public health in the healthcare delivery system. We strive to provide students with both the knowledge and skills to improve the public’s health and effectively integrate with healthcare delivery systems.
