The Institute of Public and Preventive Health (IPPH) works to improve health, reduce health disparities, and prevent injuries and illnesses in Georgia through research, service, leadership, and training.
The Institute of Public and Preventive Health acknowledges that many of the public health problems that our faculty and staff are devoted to addressing (correctional health, health disparities, chronic disease, and substance use disorder) are exacerbated by the systemic and institutionalized racism that pervades our Nation. As an Institute we are committed to doing our part to address this issue through our teaching, our research, our service to others, our hiring practices, and through the way that we interact with everyone we encounter. For more information on racism as a public health issue, please see the following links.
