Our work is at the critical intersection of education, research and practice, touching the lives of populations in Rhode Island and across the globe.

At the Brown University School of Public Health, we are educating future public health leaders to evaluate and intervene upon issues that face our most vulnerable populations—including disorders of aging and chronic health conditions, maternal and child health and infectious disease outbreaks. Our researchers are working on the front lines of the most timely public health crises of our time, from reproductive health advocacy to the overdose crisis.

Faculty across our four academic departments educate students to become public health professionals equipped with the skills needed for success in the field today.

Brown’s ethos is deeply collaborative in nature. Through partnerships across campus and in the Providence community, we foster innovation, collaboration and interdisciplinary exchange. This approach allows us to leverage the expertise of our faculty and researchers across different disciplines, leading to comprehensive and impactful public health interventions.

At Brown, our thriving research centers, dedicated to critical areas such as pandemic preparedness, gerontology, environmental health, information disorders, and substance use, are linked under one mission: to advance well-being for all.
