Dear PHP Faculty, Current Students, Staff, Alumni and Friends,
Our Public Health Program (PHP) began offering a Master of Public Health (MPH) with a General Track emphasis in 2002. In 2007, the Public Health Program (PHP) added MPH tracks in Epidemiology and Environmental Health and a Doctoral program in Epidemiology, leading to a DrPH degree. In April 2013, the Council on Education for Public Health accredited the PHP. The US Department of Education recognizes the CEPH as an independent agency that accredits schools of public health and public health programs.
I am pleased to announce you that in March 2019 the CEPH Board of Councilors reaccredited the Public Health Program for a seven-year term! The CEPH reaccreditation is a result of your hard work and support. This is an exciting time for our program, and it is important to inform faculty, students, alumni, and community members about news, events, workforce development, and continuing education in the PHP. I hope that you will value this and future editions of this Newsletter.
Your support is invaluable in continuing the outstanding work of the PHP.
