Departments

Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health engages in the broad, inclusive areas of urban health, health equity, and policy translation through the school's four departments:

In addition, Dornsife's research centers and programs and its Office of Global Health give faculty members and students the opportunity to target research in specific areas of public health practice that align with students’ unique strengths and interests.


Community Health and Prevention Department

The Community Health and Prevention Department promotes the health of communities through education, research, service and advocacy focused on the societal conditions required for people to be healthy.

The department's long-term partnerships with communities and organizations are based on respect for community values, strengths, and assets. Central to this goal is the understanding of the relationship between human rights, dignity, and health status.
