Pitt Public Health educates public health leaders, engages in public health service and research, and translates research into public health practices and policies that improve the health of populations regionally, nationally, and globally.  

Current enrollment, which includes more than 400 full-time and 200 part-time students, has increased over 30% during the past five years in response to the quality of the educational programming. The school spans a broad range of disciplines, provides a rich academic environment for students, and ranks fifth among schools of public health in terms of NIH funding.

Donors make Pitt Public Health a better place by helping ensure that the school continues to influence public health practice for people in western Pennsylvania, across the nation and around the globe. Through excellence and leadership in education, research, and service, the school promotes health, prevents disease, and strives to achieve health equity for everyone.

Gifts from alumni and friends are vital as the school prepares the next generation of public health leaders.
