Oriented toward implementation

matthew mclennan 470x313_3“Most people view medical research in a patient-centric way. But I’ve come to see that public health research provides the foundation. I am impressed with the breadth of the work at HSPH, from demographics to genetics. With faculty members who are not only world-leading researchers but also oriented toward implementation, the School is uniquely prepared to deliver on its mandate to make the world a better place. HSPH is at an interesting point in its evolution, with new initiatives such as Women and Health, training for health ministers, and the Forum events building on a multigenerational track record of pioneering research. But this growth is put at risk by potential cuts in federal funding for research. We felt this was a great opportunity to contribute to a great cause.”
