Research & Practice

We translate science into practice, applying data to real-world situations to improve community and population health.

At the Colorado School of Public Health, we conduct qualitative and quantitative research to help prevent disease, promote health, and improve the well-being of communities. We translate our research findings into evidence-based public health practice. Through our academic and research units’ work and by offering fellowships, internships, and other practice-based learning opportunities, our faculty and students provide needed services to local, national, and international communities.

Our public health practice engages our students and community in life-long relationships, education and learning. This includes practice-intensive graduate courses, field-based learning, workforce development, and online continuing education--all in partnership with leaders in the communities we serve.
