The Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington seeks to improve the health of Indiana and beyond through community-focused and participatory initiatives.
The school is proud to partner with numerous individuals and institutions to improve “global health,” which includes health for both individuals in Indiana and the United States and in other countries. Faculty, students, and staff work with community and international organizations to conduct research, service and service learning, teaching, and workforce development.
