Housed in the UNLV School of Public Health, the Department of Social and Behavioral Health is made up of faculty who are engaged in research that brings the community to the forefront through the development and evaluation of community based programs that promote health and prevent disease. Health education, health communication, and study of the social determinants of health and health disparities are essential to this area. Students in social and behavioral health are prepared to take on roles that help identify high-risk behaviors or trends in specific populations, and help to propose solutions that aim to improve overall public health in these communities.
