Our faculty members have published books, articles and research reports, presented research at national conferences and received research grants from the National Science Foundation, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Commonwealth Fund. They’ve also conducted research in Ghana, Guatemala, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Malawi, Sweden and Togo. Their research interests include:

The internship helps you address issues in developing countries such as fertility, birth control and recovery from natural disasters.

Our faculty members and students have been instrumental in improving health and social services in communities with high rates of illness, crime, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy.
