public health degreeFort Lewis is proud to announce that we have the first undergraduate Public Health Program in the State of Colorado.  Public Health is the science of protecting and improving the health of communities through education, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and research for disease and injury prevention.

Public Health practitioners focus on the health of a community before they become sick rather than the health of an individual after they are sick.

 A public health major is a mix of various fields of study including medicine, economics, sociology, anthropology, mathematics, communications, psychology, and many others.

Public health professionals analyze how genetics, personal choice, and the environment affect health, in order to develop programs that protect the health of your family and community.
