The Future of Public Health is Happening at Yale

As a science that touches all people and connects all areas of study, public health reaches across families, communities, countries and the world. Indeed, it is a global solution to many of the world’s most critical issues. At Yale, any health issue can be addressed when great minds collaborate across the university’s impressive array of disciplines. It is this rare convergence of expertise, innovation and academic partnerships that creates novel and impactful public health solutions that prevent disease, promote health and shape societies.

This is the kind of public health excellence that Yale School of Public Health (YSPH) faculty, students and alumni are known for and will continue to pursue — for the good of all humanity.

At this pivotal time, as diverse populations face the health consequences of a global pandemic, climate change, the impact of social inequality and racism on health, as well as emerging and existing diseases, YSPH sets forth a bold new vision for the future of its research, teaching and practice. Recognized as one of the top schools of public health, YSPH serves local and global communities in finding solutions that nurture wellness and address existential threats to human health.

Building on more than one hundred years of academic leadership and transformative research, the school has prioritized four of the greatest public health challenges facing the world today.
