Foundations of Public Health


Effective public health requires expertise from many disciplines, and students in public health sciences need to have a broad foundation of knowledge across these diverse disciplines in order to collaborate effectively with other health professionals.



The PHX webinars are a flexible offering that allow you to learn more about a population health topic on your own time. Join us for live-streaming of a webinar or come back and watch it later in our Media Library. Past webinar topics have included communicating science and social media presence.
