Lynn T. Kozlowski Community Health and Health Behavior Fund

Hayes Hall.

Through this fund, you can support a wide-reaching department that focuses on creating positive change.

This fund was named for the founding chair of the Department of Community Health and Health Behavior, and former dean of the School of Public Health and Health Professions, Dr. Lynn T. Kozlowski. Dr. Kozlowski’s longstanding impact on our University at Buffalo community through education, leadership, mentorship, and research advances in the field of public health will forever be remembered as we continue to support student academic success through this named fund. The fund provides resources for the Department of Community Health and Health Behavior.

Through its dedication to research, training and outreach, the department helps prepare students for success in the public health arena. Here, students discover what influences health behavior choices, the role of the community in health challenges and solutions, and how to make the healthiest choice an easy choice. We believe high scientific standards are critical for developing and assessing effective interventions and policies, as well as for conducting basic behavioral research that will lead to improved public health.

Within the department, students learn how to conduct research on behavioral and community factors influencing disease prevention and health promotion; create positive changes in the health of their local, regional and broader communities; and develop, implement, monitor and evaluate public health programs addressing behavioral and community health.

Graduates enjoy influential careers in public health agencies, academia, health care delivery systems, voluntary health agencies and private research firms.
