Message from the Associate Dean for Practice
Welome to the Office of Public Health Practice, launched at the University of Michigan School of Public Health in 2005. This Practice Office works to bring greater visibility and emphasis to building the practice of public health at the University of Michigan.
Our mission and goals for service and practice.
Our goals are to strengthen public health practice relationships among those from academia, public health agencies, and communities. We work with governmental units, public health associations, other Michigan universities and schools and healthcare organizations to make a difference in the health, well-being and quality of life for Michigan’s residents. We extend the School of Public Health and University resources to public health practitioners in governmental, community-based organizations and healthcare entities. We also build practice opportunities for our SPH students. We foster experiences, placements and internships that can make a difference in the lives of the student, as well as in the community.
We look forward to working with the current and future public health workforce. As the Associate Dean for Practice, I invite you to visit our Practice Office, browse our website, and learn how we can help you.
Dr. Phyllis Meadows
