For three-quarters of a century, the University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health has championed vital initiatives to inform and empower local communities and diverse populations around the world.

Our groundbreaking research grows from a rich history—from Jonas Salk’s development of the polio vaccine in the 1950s—to current priorities that drive positive change and enrich the future of the public health.

Through excellence in research, education and practice, we generate knowledge, train public health professions and partner with communities locally and globally to promote health, prevent disease and achieve health equity.
