We work to improve health, reduce health disparities, and prevent injuries and illnesses in Georgia through research, service, leadership and training.

Over time, the research and service initiatives of the Institute will cover all five core competency areas of public health and preventive health: health management and administration, epidemiology, behavioral health and health education, environmental and occupational health, and biostatistics.

Healthy Georgia: Our State of Public Health Report

Booklet Mockup

The Healthy Georgia: Our State of Public Health report is designed to be a single consolidated resource with the latest available data on the state of public health in Georgia for use by legislators, public health professionals, and other key stakeholders. IPPH faculty analyze data from various sources to highlight differences, both positive and negative, between Georgia, its neighboring states in the Southeast region, and the United States as a whole. Disparities within our state based on race/ethnicity, income, and place of residence (rural/urban) are also featured.

We welcome your feedback on the Healthy Georgia: Our State of Public Health report. Take our survey to share your thoughts.
