Global Public Health

Tags:

The field of global public health serves as an important foundation for the promotion and protection of health — locally, nationally, and globally.

While clinical health professionals such as doctors and nurses work to treat illness and injury once they have occurred, global public health is focused on preventing problems from happening or re-occurring through the administration of prevention services, health education and promotion, policy development and regulation, and research.

Global public health professionals have worked over the last century to extend life expectancy, reduce infant mortality, and improve the quality of life for vulnerable populations in the US and abroad. The Dominican Global Public Health Program strives to prepare competent, culturally sensitive, and ethically grounded professionals with a strong foundation in global public health theories and practice.

A Bachelor of Science in Global Public Health is preparation for entry into a dynamic, complex, and broad profession.
