EVANSVILLE -

The University of Evansville has launched the Institute for Public Health. The university says the institute will provide hands-on experiences to students while addressing community public health needs. 

UE says the institute will facilitate multidisciplinary partnerships among faculty, students, and community members to support the planning and development of evidence-based programs and policy. William McConnell, who has been tapped to lead the institute, adds it will provide students and faculty with a platform to solve real public health issues.

"The Institute for Public Health will be genuinely interdisciplinary, involving students and faculty members from across the institution," said McConnell. "It is an area that intersects with many of our disciplines - sociology, political science, management, marketing, data science, civil engineering, ethics and social change, and all of our health fields, just to name a few."

The first major project for the institute will be to collaborate with 11 hospital systems throughout the state to conduct a 39-county Community Health Needs Assessment. UE says the project will provide a variety of opportunities for student and faculty collaboration and research.

Is your company providing a product or service? Is it easy to sell? Is it cheap? Do your customers buy once?
