Addressing today's critical health challenges

Tobacco, alcohol, and other substance use; environmental pollutants and children's health. From preparing for the next pandemic to evaluating health care policy: 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.

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 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. ”
