School of Public Health

More than moms and babies, our program focuses on the entire life course, from prenatal stages through adolescence and women’s health. Our students develop the leadership skills to improve the research, service systems, programs, and policies that support the health of women, children, and families in the United States.

The Maternal and Child Health program offers graduate-level training in maternal and child health research and practice, including epidemiology, biostatistics, program planning and management, policy development, and advocacy.
