Department of Health Behavior

Dr. CrosbyLetter from the Chair

The Department of Health Behavior is comprised of highly productive faculty members who embrace the traditions of academia through their teaching, scholarship, and funded research projects. Indeed, the department is home to nationally known scholars who obtain research funding from organizations such as the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. This excellence in research fosters multiple learning opportunities for the MPH students who have chosen to enter our program. Indeed, faculty members in the Department are quite eager to share their research expertise with students and they often help place students into vital practicum opportunities and even entry-level careers. Without exception, faculty members are highly devoted to training the next generation of leaders in health behavior. 

Please take your time viewing this web page to learn more about our faculty, their research projects, their publications, and the courses they teach. You will find one theme that persists throughout this information – faculty members are clearly dedicated to the prevention of disease and their work is making a difference!

Our department is small in size thereby allowing us the ability to work closely with our students. Our current and former students are also very diverse, representing multiple cultures and nations through the world — the factor uniting all of us is a love for primary and secondary prevention in public health practice. Our learning environment is predicated on the observation that public health is an applied discipline. Although we offer a strong cadre of coursework, the practicum experience is held in the highest regard. Our students have been successfully placed in practicum experiences with agencies such as CDC and we have nurtured connections, throughout the U.S. to better serve the needs of our students as they progress in their public health careers. Please take your time on this web page to learn about our current and former students and their success in finding productive and fulfilling careers in public health.

Sincerely,

2012 Presentation


Extraordinary StudentsPhoto of students at CPH picnic

Our students are highly dedicated to the prevention of disease, both domestically and globally. Students who have currently chosen to concentrate in health behavior for their MPH or DrPH degrees come from more than a dozen different states in the U.S. and an increasing number come from other countries. We are extremely pleased that the learning environment is rich with this diversity. Our students bring excitement to the classroom through their hands-on-knowledge that enrich the learning process. Our learning environment is also predicated on the observation that public health is an applied discipline. Although we offer a strong cadre of coursework, the practicum and capstone experiences are held in the highest regard. Our students have been successfully placed in practicum experiences with agencies such as CDC, American Heart Association and the Kentucky State Health Department and we have nurtured connections, throughout the U.S., that help our students obtain data for their capstone experience.
