The Department of Population Health Sciences at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University was established in 2017 to strengthen the public medical school’s impact on the health of Georgia.

It teams the former Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology with the Georgia Prevention Institute, to enable scientists and educators to pursue and share a more comprehensive perspective on which Georgians are getting sick, what they have and why, and which targeted interventions and treatments are most effective for them.

Expanded research and training opportunities in the developing field of population health at MCG and across the nation are better enabling exploration of fundamental questions such as why some groups get a disease and others don’t – the kinds of questions that have to be addressed to improve wellbeing.
