Helping People Live Healthier Lives

Redefining What It Means To Be Healthy

In today’s world, health encompasses much more than an individual’s physical well-being. We must address mental health and wellness. We must consider community-wide health. And we must understand disparities among communities, here in Buffalo and around the world. At UB, we are proud to have the opportunity—and the responsibility—to improve lives through health.

Here is How We Care For Communities

Our health affects nearly every aspect of our lives, from our ability to combat chronic diseases to the economic impact of global pandemics. Here, we work tirelessly toward life-saving medical breakthroughs, improving efficiencies in our health care system and understanding the ways in which inequity affects health care outcomes.

To accomplish our goals, we draw on the expertise of our health sciences schools (including medicine, nursing, dental medicine, public health, pharmacy and social work), as well as law, business and other key disciplines. With your support, we will continue to attract, retain and support the awe-inspiring students and faculty who dedicate their careers to helping others enjoy longer, healthier lives.
