Public health. What it is, what it does, how it works is changing daily. And Boston University School of Public Health (SPH) is at the frontier of that evolution, propelling public health into one of the most consequential careers of our times. Public health is concerned with the social, economic, and cultural forces that create health. This includes issues of contemporary concern such as obesity, gun violence, poverty, infant mortality, LGBTQ rights, and human trafficking. If you want your own efforts to advance the world, public health is an exhilarating opportunity to do just that.
