The Loyola mission to serve those who suffer injustice coincides with the recent changes in the medical care financial structure and the ongoing demand to eliminate disparities in access to healthcare both domestically and globally. In our continued efforts to improve health and promote well-being, the Stritch School of Medicine Department of Public Health Sciences offers a Certificate in Public Health (CPH). The CPH program will train students to address racial and economic health disparities through public health research, practice and advocacy. Loyola has a unique physical and social environment to support public health education. We are located in a racial and economically diverse community and our health professionals and faculty are committed to promoting social justice in the Jesuit tradition.
