Our Mission

Improve health and promote the well-being of individuals, families, and communities in Arkansas through education, research and service.

We believe that, at its core, public health is about social justice – what’s best for all of us, not just a few. We define “health” broadly, to include all those things which allow individuals, families, and communities to become healthier.
UAMS Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health is Accredited by CEPH, CAHME (for MHA program) and is a member of ASPPH.
