Population & Public Health

The responsibilities of public health professionals include identifying the causes of disease outbreaks, monitoring air and water quality, vaccinating communities, preparing for emergencies, and inspecting restaurants. In recent years, public health has taken on a broader set of issues such as global environmental challenges and social factors that lead to health disparities among populations.

John Carroll’s minor in Population and Public Health seeks to prepare our students to be leaders in this important and growing industry.
