From investigating disease outbreaks to developing lead screening and immunization programs for children and their families, Public Health professionals impact our community everyday in a big way. They work to understand how our social behaviors, habits, and environment affect us, and how we can improve them. Public Health professionals are the architects of a healthier future.
