Applied Public Health

Applied public health focuses on the development and maintenance of relationships and other activities to link Rollins with the public health practice communities. The functions of applied public health fall into two areas: those that are core activities of the school and those that are funded through extramural grants and contracts.Kathy Miner

Core academic oversight functions include: practicum experience, continuing professional education, and the Executive MPH program—the graduate distance education program whose director reports to Dr. Miner. The general areas of extramural funding include: public health workforce development, technology-based instruction, applied research and evaluation, and public health professional development.
