Lifelong health for all: It’s our passion. To us, health means nutritious meals for our schoolchildren, and preventing chronic and debilitating disease. It means knowing our drinking water is safe, and addressing critical issues like obesity and diabetes. Our work helps advance the policies, knowledge and practices vital to creating health and well-being for individuals, families and communities in Oregon – and beyond. And our students and graduates are the next generation of globally minded public health and human sciences professionals.
