The Center for Public Health Studies (CPHS) seeks to enhance the public’s health by conducting interdisciplinary research exploring the interaction of health, society, and social policy. Our goals include:
- assessing the structural causes and consequences of health and disease;
- examining health behaviors in their social context;
- studying the effects of culture and the environment on our health and attitudes toward health care; and
- analyzing the political processes and social policies that affect the health status of populations.
