Prevention and Community Health

The Milken Institute School of Public Health Department of Prevention and Community Health is concerned with social and behavior change for the health and well-being of people around the world. We care about prevention, and we promote health and well-being with the active participation of individuals and communities. If you are interested in putting into practice the latest public health research, or making significant scholarly contributions to the evidence base of public health, this is the public health program for you. Our students study four interrelated fields: community-oriented primary care; health promotion; maternal and child health; and public health communication and marketing.
