Public Health Policy


The Public Health Policy focus area helps prepare students to design, implement, manage, and influence public health policy at the local, state, and federal levels. Students will explore how scientific data can be used to formulate policy recommendations and draft legislation aimed at reducing healthcare disparities and public health risks for individuals and communities. Microeconomic and macroeconomic models and the influence of public finance on policy choices will be examined, as will the tools and techniques used by policymakers and analysts to evaluate the impact of social programs. Throughout the dissertation process, students will be supported by scholar-practitioner faculty members as they pursue individual research in an interest area of public health policy.
