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.
