Our Contribution to Public Health

At our Centre we have developed a number of partnership projects, research, training and professional programmes to strengthen the knowledge, skills and understanding of practitioners and our students in and across public health. Additionally, working with expert colleagues across the University, we provide be-spoke services to help improve the health and wellbeing of the student and staff population. This encompasses weight loss obesity, smoking and exercise programmes. Together with our research platform, this makes a major contribution towards being both a Healthy University and a Health Promoting University.

Our international partnerships and ongoing projects with the City University of New York (CUNY) and University of the Western Cape (UWC) in South Africa are forging news ways to collaborate and develop strategies that are sustainable for long term public health gains within and across the respective communities.
