Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Hubert Department of Global Health at Emory's Rollins School of Public Health.

The Hubert Department of Global Health seeks to understand and reduce global inequities in health and well-being. Inquiry-driven and ethically engaged, we seek to improve health status and delivery systems around the world through teaching, multidisciplinary research, program design and evaluation, service, and inspiring public-private and civic sector engagement in social action.

Our Scholarship, our Global Field Experience internships and our Atlanta-based (e.g., CDC, CARE, the Carter Center) and global partnerships provide unparalleled opportunities to increase the capacity of students, fellows, researchers, policy makers and program managers to take on increasing responsibility for global health leadership.

Our ultimate goal is to strengthen the capacities of families, communities, societies and governments to identify and reduce barriers to health and wellness.
