In order to achieve our mission of creating knowledge to protect and improve the wellbeing of our communities, the School of Population and Public Health requires support in our areas of greatest need, including graduate and postdoctoral programs. With your help, we aim to increase student financial aid, enhance education programs and expand research activity, so that new discoveries in health can benefit individuals across Canada and beyond. Through our education and research programs, your generosity will have a vital impact on our raising the bar for institutional and environmental health, where it is most urgently needed.
The School of Population and Public Health has seen significant changes since it was created in 2008. It moved into its own building in 2010, before merging with the School of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene in 2011. Since then, several centres and units, such as the Human Early Learning Partnership, the W. Maurice Young Centre for Applied Ethics, and Population Data BC have become part of the School, creating a truly interdisciplinary setting for population and public health students. This year, the School welcomed the newly established Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health, furthering the University’s long-standing commitment to Aboriginal engagement.
