The Institute of Public Health at Loyola University Chicago is dedicated to maintaining a nationally recognized scholarly environment that supports its mission of reducing the global burden of preventable disease, improving international health, and decreasing health disparities arising from racial, ethnic, socio-economic, gender, environmental or other factors. This will be accomplished by:
- Inter-professional education of students for effective careers and leadership positions in public health through development of core practice, research and advocacy competencies;
- Conducting nationally/internationally recognized research that identifies and minimizes or eliminates factors, including policies, that contribute to the burden of preventable disease and health disparities; and
- Working within local and global communities to improve health and reduce disparities.
