Health Promotion Sciences
Health Promotion Sciences engages the community to translate science into practice to inspire and change the world. The mission of the Division of Health Promotion Sciences in the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health is to collaborate with communities in southwestern United States in developing innovative responses to health challenges, and translating best practices globally.
The Health Promotion Sciences division (HPS) is sub-divided into sections that are aligned with academic areas. HPS consist of the Family and Child Health section and the Health Behavior and Health Promotion section. The division supports the instruction, research and service mission of the College by providing excellent classroom, research and community training opportunities to students.
