New Institute


of Public Health Loyola is establishing a new Institute of


Public Health dedicated to reducing the global burden of disease, improving in- ternational health, and decreasing health disparities due to racial, ethnic, socioeco- nomic, gender, environmental, and other factors. The institute will: • Educate students for careers and lead- ership positions in public health;


• Conduct internationally recognized research on factors that contribute to disease and health disparities;


• Work within local and global commu- nities to improve health and reduce disparities;


• Recruit a diverse faculty and student body that will improve understand- ing of the causes of and solutions for health risks and disparities.


The institute will build upon the Master


of Public Health degree program that the Stritch School of Medicine established in 2009 to provide the breadth and depth required to educate future professionals and link students with community projects and public health research. Amy Luke, PhD, professor of Public Health Sciences in the Stritch School of Medicine, will serve as director of the institute.
