Our Mission

The Center for Critical Public Health is a research group committed to shifting the rules of engagement in public health. Our research centers the multiple experiences, values, and beliefs of people whose voices are often left at the margins. We analyze the extent to which public health practice and policy-making are aligned with the everyday lives of people who experience health inequities. We highlight the public(s) in public health.
