Public Health in Action
At the Yale School of Public Health, we believe that all communities are local. Our faculty and students have used this driving principle to steer their research and public health practice for over a 100 years. A century ago, our efforts focused on water sanitation, polio and other common infectious diseases. Today those efforts are focusing not only on infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Zika and HPV, but also non-infectious diseases, the health effects of climate change, poverty, stigma, obesity and many others. From the New Haven to New Delhi and places in between, we continue to engage with communities to advance their health and advocate for their well-being.
How will my information be used?
When you express interest in a specific study, the information from your profile will be sent to the doctor conducting that study. If you're eligible to participate, you may be contacted by a nurse or study coordinator.
If you select a health category rather than a specific study, doctors who have active studies in that area may contact you to ask if you would like to participate.
In both cases, you will be contacted by the preferred method (email or phone) that you specified in your profile.
