to improve the health and wellbeing of rural and underserved populations. This interdisciplinary
program includes faculty across a number of health-related programs at OSU Stillwater
and Tulsa as well as it Center for Health Sciences campus. Some students may be interested
in earning a graduate certificate in Public Health (15 hrs) to expand their career
Current students study health behaviors and health outcome areas that include: the
use of alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, mental health, disabilities, zoonotic diseases,
nutrition and food security, obesity, physical activity, maternal and child health,

communities throughout Oklahoma and underserved populations that include indigenous
populations, racial minorities, recent immigrants, and sexual minorities.
