The College of Public Health has a very active community-based research program. Community-based, or practice-based research bridges the gap between research and public health practice, and provides a training ground to prepare students who will enter the public health work force. Tapping into the expertise found in county health departments, the State laboratory system, as well as other community-based agencies and organizations is a critical connection with the real world of the practice community. Examples of types of funded, community-focused research include international women's health, domestic violence, tobacco and alcohol prevention, air and water quality, patient safety, injury control and healthy start collaborations.
Presentation of Research:Faculty and students continually present their research and practice at local, state, national and international professional meetings and their work is published in numerous peer-reviewed journals. The individual faculty web pages, listed by department and linked below, contain a sampling of presentations and publications for faculty.
