Solving tomorrow’s health challenges begins today

We prepare the next generation of globally aware problem-solvers and seek to understand and confront health disparity to improve the health and well-being of all people, at every stage of life.

The new center will provide support and training from an anti-bias, culturally responsive lens to better equip educators who care for children from marginalized populations and for children who have experienced trauma.

Dean Brian Primack’s goals: unlock potential, focus on community, bring people together and help ensure health for all.

The purpose of this grant is to reduce children’s exposure to harmful environmental factors and improve their health and well-being.
