This certificate is designed to develop students’ abilities to translate research into practice, use evidence to inform public health policy, shift social norms and attitudes, and improve public health.
The Center enhances the ability of students to apply their research and programmatic capabilities in real-world settings.
If we want demonstrable improvements in the public’s health, we need to intervene in the larger political and social arena and more fully engage in advocacy to inform decision making in our society.
— Ellen J. MacKenzie PhD ’79, MSc ’75, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor, Dean, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
Advocacy—working for policy change and better implementation of existing policies—is crucial to public health. We envision a world where knowledge is generated and translated into policy and action to create lasting change for communities and the public’s health.
