Addressing today's critical public health challenges

From preparing for the next pandemic to combating mis- and disinformation to developing effective health policies: the role of public health is more important now than ever. The School of Public Health’s research centers and institutes are addressing public health issues across the nation and the world.

Faculty and researchers from Brown University make contributions to the field of public health every day, including:

  • Proving how the use of fast-acting fentanyl detection strips reduces opioid overdose deaths
  • Evaluating food insecurity as a health issue, particularly for children and seniors
  • Providing evidence-based insight to inform programs aimed at preventing sexual violence among teens
  • Making connections between environmental exposures and the risk for suffering a stroke

Your gift through the BrownTogether campaign will provide the resources necessary to advance discovery and to prepare the public health scientists, innovators, and leaders of the future to tackle and find solutions for the world’s biggest health challenges.

“ Brown’s culture of multidisciplinary research makes it uniquely capable of addressing the present challenges as well as preparing for the future. ”
