About

Students in the Community Health program at The City University of New York will work to improve the health and wellbeing of entire communities. 

Overview

While clinical health professionals might treat an elderly diabetic patient, a community health professional will work to understand and reduce a community’s elevated risk for diabetes. 

At The City University of New York, students in the Bachelor of Science program in Community Health learn to analyze how both social structures (including poverty, racism and environmental exposures) and behavioral choices shape a community’s health.  They take courses in health disparities, epidemiology, public health biology, and community health assessment to develop their analytic skills and courses in health communications and social media to learn tools for addressing public health problems.
