Augusta University President Brooks A. Keel, PhD, has announced the creation of the School of Public Health, which will be a crucial tool in helping promote the health of populations in today’s rapidly changing environment.
“As the state’s only public academic health center, it is our responsibility and our privilege to help ensure the health of Georgia’s citizens and communities,” Keel said. “At Augusta University’s new School of Public Health, students will be offered a comprehensive educational experience designed to prepare leaders who understand the important role of public health in today’s society.
“Within this new school, students will be equipped with critical-thinking, problem-solving and information-management skills that will improve health care delivery and promote public health across this nation.”
