When the Ebola virus struck in Western Africa and reached American shores, the world looked to Nebraska. The University of Nebraska Medical Center’s College of Public Health has emerged as world leaders in protocols, research and education on Ebola and is now educating professionals across the globe on how to win the battle against Ebola and other public health threats.
The mission of the College of Public Health is to promote optimal health and well-being through robust education, research and service in collaboration with communities in Nebraska, across the country and around the world. The goal of the College of Public Health is to increase the odds that everyone everywhere can, and will, make healthy choices through prevention and health promotion. Armed with data, we apply science to practice and policy in order to strategically improve the health of communities.
