Public Health Research & Training Resources at UNE

Creating knowledge through research

UNE has estab­lished a vari­ety of venues intend­ed to advance research and train­ing in pub­lic health. These efforts facil­i­tate stu­dent and fac­ul­ty col­lab­o­ra­tion, as well as a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary approach that allows for mean­ing­ful par­tic­i­pa­tion in the gen­er­a­tion of new knowl­edge.
