The Lerner Center For Public Health Promotion

The Lerner Center
For Public Health Promotion

The Lerner Center For Public Health Promotion was established in November 2014 with a gift from Sid and Helaine Lerner, longtime friends of the School.

The goal of the Center is to equip public health professionals with the tools needed to win the battle against preventable diseases brought on by unhealthy behaviors and unfavorable social and policy environments on the local, national and global level. The Center trains faculty and students in the art and science of health promotion and advocacy and develops and disseminates innovative and effective health promotion and advocacy interventions that address key health issues.

Mission Statement

When the art and science of communications and marketing inform how leading public health experts share new knowledge, cutting-edge research travels beyond university walls, reaches journalists, communities, policymakers, and with it they change the world.
