Leading the way for public health education, research, and service

At the School of Public Health, we aim to advance the science of public health, improve quality of life, and eliminate health disparities for our communities, the nation, and the world.

The UNLV School of Public Health was established in 2004 with the goal of improving the health and well-being of people worldwide. More than fifteen years later, its departments, programs, and research units are growing and still working to provide a diverse education, practical training experience, and numerous community involvement opportunities to prepare students to become leaders and professionals in the field of Public Health.
