What is Behavioral and Community Health?

The Behavioral and Community Health Sciences are concerned with promoting wellness, preventing disease, and improving the quality of life among marginalized communities and populations. Our program advocates the use of a socio-ecological approach to identify and understand the social, cultural, and bio-behavioral determinants affecting health. The diversity of our faculty’s areas of expertise affords students a broad range of perspectives for designing, implementing, and evaluating interventions to address the most pressing public health issues. We invite you to explore our department webpages to learn more about our programs, curriculum, faculty, and ongoing research.
