MSU Program in Public Health
The MSU Division of Public Health focuses on population health from its home base – the College of Human Medicine’s Flint campus. Being embedded in the Flint community allows our faculty and researchers to understand the assets and needs of the community while studying Flint’s most pressing public health issues.
Spartans work side-by-side with community partners and healthcare providers in a community-identified and community-participatory public health focus model to:
- Encourage healthy behaviors, mitigate chronic diseases, identify environmental health risks, and examine social factors that influence community health
- Prepare graduate students to become competent public health professionals to meet the needs of communities across the globe
- Engage agencies, professional organizations, and community-based partners on collaborative projects to improve health care delivery that will lead to reductions in health disparities in the community, the state of Michigan, and beyond.
