In Support of Public and Population Health: CMU Researchers Form Working Group Focused on Health Solutions
Carnegie Mellon University President Farnam Jahanian recently announced the creation of an initiative to advance public and population health research and action at CMU.
The In Support of Public & Population Health (ISOPPH) Working Group is being co-led by Heinz College professor Amelia Haviland along with professor Roni Rosenfeld, head of CMU’s Machine Learning Department.
As threats to population health increase in scale and complexity, they will continue to demand an adaptive response that is tailored for the modern era and focused on achieving equitable outcomes. At this pivotal moment for our global society, Carnegie Mellon embraces the opportunity to expand our impact in public and population health.Farnam Jahanian, President of Carnegie Mellon University
The group’s goal is to collaborate with public and population health experts and officials, community representatives, and other stakeholders to determine how CMU’s faculty expertise and research interests can more intentionally align to address the gaps and challenges facing public and population health in the 21st century.
On the working group’s webpage, they state their “investigative focus will be on initiatives with the potential to achieve on-the-ground impact on population health and public health practice within a few years.”
Other Heinz College faculty in the group include professors Martin Gaynor, Rayid Ghani, and Rema Padman.
