Empowering the Fielding School to respond quickly to needs and opportunities as they arise.
Discoveries in public health have led to increased life expectancy, improved food quality and cleaner air and water. Still, we continue to face new public health challenges daily, from gun violence to climate change to obesity.
The UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, one of the top 10 graduate schools of public health in the nation, trains the next generation of leaders who will join the public health workforce to address these issues. Through teaching, research and service, Fielding School students are equipped to create healthier futures in communities near and far. Recent graduates advance public health through work in community-based organizations and government agencies, health care management, and research institutions. Ultimately, FSPH alumni are committed to improving the health of vulnerable populations and to transforming scientific evidence into impact.
Sadly, the world faces a shortage of the public health workers needed to keep our communities healthy. By 2020, in the U.S. alone, we will be short 250,000 public health workers — one-third of the workforce needed. In addition, the operating budget for FSPH is shrinking as a result of decreased state support.
