Achieving Health Equity and Sustainable Communities

Why Study Population Health?

The role of population health is to deliver value-based care to the public, and The University of New Mexico College of Population Health is working to improve health equity and achieve sustainable communities. Population health uses the framework of integrated health strategies to work collectively with communities to improve their health as well as expand access, quality, and affordability of health care.

If this sounds important to you, you belong here at UNM College of Population Health. Here, you will have the opportunity to learn how to find the right information to discover the best solutions in which to help the community. We teach future leaders how to combine population health data and public policy with real word science to help you find opportunities to make a difference.

Are you a passionate individual ready to change the world?

At The University of New Mexico College of Population Health, we bridge community health, epidemiology and health system policy for a hands-on experience.
