The Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine (DPHPM) reaches across the university with a commitment to educating students and conducting research in the broad disciplines of public health, preventive medicine, health promotion, and the health services for the communities we serve.

Faculty members from across the institution interested in population health are able to develop scholarly partnerships to better address community needs and enhance clinical research expertise.

Department Chair

Existing alliances with local health departments, such as through the Commission for a Healthy Central New York, and our newly developed partnership with Syracuse University, will be expanded by bringing scholarly resources together in a focused way.

The Center for Civic Engagement is now a member of our department. The Center has a strong presence in the community and can provide an avenue for our faculty and students to do community outreach.
