Home to the college’s Division of Public Health Practice and Translational Research, the Phoenix Campus works to deliver high quality education and research that will expand and improve public health programs throughout the State of Arizona.

Research

Faculty within the Phoenix programs engage in many active research projects based on their varied fields of expertise, and often in collaboration with community organizations, healthcare providers, and researchers in other fields of health sciences. Examples of research interests and expertise include program development and implementation, telemedicine, healthcare business and finance, cultural competency, nutrition, epidemiology, border/bi-national health, health disparities, immunizations, public administration, community based participatory research, and preventive medicine.

Community Outreach

Faculty and students have provided public health services to the community through a variety of partnerships and programs including service learning courses, grant collaboration, community education, volunteer donation drives, and the Mobile Health Units. Outreach and service benefit communities, and at the same time enables both students and faculty to better understand the issues that concern and impact those communities so they can effectively address those challenges.
