Department of Preventive Medicine

The department’s research focus is broad and encompassing, reflecting the scope of population health and preventive medicine, from local to national and even global scales. While its activities and educational mission intersect with interests of faculty in other departments and schools within the University, the department is special for its transdisciplinarity and broad reach into the School of Medicine and the University.
