Translating Public Health Research

In classrooms, labs, and communities, public health reveals deeper understandings about human health. But to empower populations and impact lives for the better, that knowledge has to be shared. Sharing knowledge is, after all, central to the mission of public health.

“I’m interested in understanding how youth and young adults move between their digital and physical lives to cultivate their health behaviors. I’m learning what people require in order to feel close to solutions that provide health, healing, and positive well-being. What’s considered valuable information will shape the future of health equity.”
