The College for Health, Community and Policy was established to educate the next generation of public health professionals committed to eliminating health disparities and transforming underserved communities. Modern health careers require a transdisciplinary understanding of the numerous biological, psychological, demographic, social, and environmental factors impacting the health of individuals and their communities.
According to the SA Works 2018 Jobs Report, the number of healthcare related jobs in the San Antonio-New Braunfels increased by 8,758 over the last five years, with this trend expected to continue into the next decade and beyond.
Research Opportunities in Health Disparities
