Our fourth annual Public Health Research @Maryland was held Tuesday April 5, 2016!

At PHRM we explored and learned about recent advances in public health, ongoing research opportunities and the new collaborations between the University of Maryland, College Park, the University of Maryland, Baltimore and other academic, community, state and federal partners. This year’s theme—From Community Engagement to Population Health—showcased research from an array of student, faculty, government and private researchers and feature dynamic panel discussions.

Public health addresses complex issues: the obesity epidemic, climate change, substance abuse, aging, health disparities and much more. The University of Maryland School of Public Health, located at one of the nation's leading public research universities, offers an unusal breadth of expertise to explore these and other issues through public health disciplines as well as lenses as varied as engineering, arts and humanities, business and public policy.

While our School of Public Health launched in 2007, we are built upon a foundation of disciplines that have a long and rich history at the University of Maryland. As such, we celebrate the thousands of Terps who have graduated from our legacy departments as well as our recent SPH alumni. We welcome you, as well as our many friends and colleagues, to engage in School of Public Health activities and to explore ways to support our growth and success.
