Overview

Watch how the 2015 Reimagining Health in Cities symposium, hosted by Drexel's Urban Health Collaborative, brought together researchers, practitioners, and policy makers focused on health in cities to energize work on urban places and health, generate novel ideas for research, and stimulate debate on policy implications.

The Dornsife School of Public Health is committed to generating scientific evidence that will improve population health locally, regionally, and globally. Our work is rooted in interdisciplinary collaborations that translate innovative research into public health policy and practice. The School's externally funded research portfolio has included support from NIH, NSF, HRSA, CDC, UNICEF, the Department of Justice, as well as multiple state and local city agencies and foundations. While the scope of our projects is wide-ranging, areas of particular interest include urban health, neighborhood determinants of health outcomes, and health disparities. For more information about specific projects and areas of research emphasis please view info from the left sidebar menu as well as our faculty profile pages.
