The Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine is expanding its summer undergraduate offerings, including a new summer institute that is designed to introduce students to public health.

Welcome to Public Health introduces students to the field from both historical and contemporary perspectives. The institute combines two 3-credit courses required for the public health undergraduate major, which can be taken separately or as a paired summer course.

Across the courses, students are introduced to current public health practice in both the U.S. and abroad as well as the mechanisms of health and disease at the cellular, individual and population or community level.

The courses will be taught from June 2 through 27 and July 7 through August 1, 2014.

The course is in addition to the school’s successful Food Institute (Food: Farm to Table).

Dee Boling is director of communications for the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
