We're Turning 10.

It has been ten years since Brown's Corporation voted to unite the University's public health programs into a unified School of Public Health. To honor this milestone, we welcome alumni, students, faculty, community partners and the wider Brown community to join us in celebrating where we are, where we have been, and where we are headed. 

10 Year Anniversary events are a chance to:

  • Connect with local partners to showcase our impact in Rhode Island and beyond
  • Honor our school’s history and share plans for its future
  • Celebrate the major contributions that our students and faculty have made to public health research over the past decade
  • Strengthen connections with our alumni base
  • Support new research priority areas emerging at SPH—including the intersection between climate change & public health

10 Year Anniversary Kickoff Event 

This fall we are hosting a festive kickoff event that offers a speaking program followed by a lively reception. This event will take the place of our annual State of the School gathering, which has been a relatively new tradition—only two years old—that brings students, faculty and staff together in early September to learn more about the status of the school and celebrate the year ahead. We will have exhibits that showcase our school’s areas of impact and interactive opportunities to share your sentiments about Brown's School of Public Health.

Sep 27, 2023 | 5 - 7 PM | Alumnae Hall

Why Celebrate?

Our work changes people’s lives for the better, locally and globally

Whether analyzing lead paint samples or providing life-saving medication to people with substance use disorders, our researchers have made a real impact in Rhode Island and beyond. We have a legacy of service and support, and we work with some of our most vulnerable populations to improve their health.

We are training the public health leaders of tomorrow

The Covid-19 pandemic elevated the field of public health to the forefront of the public’s imagination. It has sparked a new generation of students to study public health. Taking on a career in public health means becoming a facile data analyst, a tireless advocate for the underserved, as well as a successful communicator. We’re proud to educate our students in these important skills, and we are dedicated to providing them with the tools they need to become leaders in the field.

The best is yet to come

While we are building upon a strong legacy of public engagement and research, we’re also continuing to develop a robust research portfolio in some of the most important public health issues of our time. We’ve piloted programs in pandemic preparedness and response, the health impacts of mis/disinformation, and the relationship between climate change and public health. Brown has become a hub for forward-thinking public health professionals because we are innovative, collaborative leaders in the field.



Founded in 2013, our school has made significant contributions to the field of public health and the academic legacy of Brown University.
