Community & Practice
Sometimes you need to build a bridge in order to make a connection. Public health practice occurs when we take our knowledge, skills and competencies and collectively use them to improve population health. This occurs through organized, strategic, interdisciplinary action. At the Colorado School of Public Health, we strive for excellence in practice so that you have the tools and insights needed to make a difference in our changing world. Our public health practice engages our students and community in life-long education and learning, while our centers provide a full range of services for public health programs including practice-engaged research and evaluation, and convening seminars and symposia on emerging public health issues. We invite you to consider us as your bridge in public health.
