Epidemiology and Environmental Health Department Fund

Hayes Hall.

Provide resources to help understand and prevent disease through this fund.

This fund supports the Epidemiology and Environmental Health Department within UB’s School of Public Health and Health Professions. Here, we focus on understanding the determinants and prevention of disease, the role of environmental factors in health and disease, and how the administration of health programs can help implement this understanding.

Within the department, we offer programs in epidemiology, environmental health and health services administration, as well as collaborative programs with other schools throughout the university. 

The Department of Epidemiology and Environmental Health is dedicated to research, teaching and service, as well as continuing the department’s long tradition of educating leaders who play key roles in the public health arena. At UB, we are proud to bring together faculty, students and postdoctoral fellows with widely diverse backgrounds to engage in developing new ideas, methods and knowledge to improve the health of populations.
