Population Health Research

Research at the UNM College of Population Health focuses on eliminating injury and disease, improving the health of the people in our region and beyond, and reducing healthcare disparities among populations.

The UNM College of Population Heath is awarded more than $4 million in funding annually. Part of a nationally recognized academic medical center, we rely on a multidisciplinary approach spanning public health, health care delivery, economics, nutrition, biomedical informatics, and more to forge new understanding of populations.

The College of Population Health works in partnership with communities, neighborhood organizations, nonprofit and government agencies, the private sector, health systems and policy entities such as tribes, local and state governments and others.
