Welcome Message

Welcome to the Graduate Public Health Program (PHP) at the College of Veterinary Medicine (TUCUMAN), Tuskegee University. Our program is uniquely positioned and aligned to the only Historically Black College and University in the USA with a prestigious veterinary training program. In fact, our School of Veterinary Medicine is the leading veterinary institution which has trained at least 75 percent of all African American veterinarians. The PHP, initiated in August 2011 and entrusted with the rights, privileges and status to offer the Master of Public Health (MPH) and the Master of Science in Public Health (MPH) degrees, has been assisting to meet the urgent need for more Public Health Professionals nationally and internationally, given the numerous public health concerns that continuously arise due to communicable and non-communicable diseases, health conditions and co-morbidities, environmental challenges, and disaster threats. The program therefore, offers opportunities to minorities who desire to pursue an administrative public health career or to enter the field of research that can transition into the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. All our graduates have so far received public health training through research application, thesis preparation, and a wide exposure to practical principles, knowledge and public health skills for synthesis, integration and public health application and attainment of the ten (10) essential principles of public Health. We therefore welcome all eligible applicants to apply to our program following our admissions requirement at: https://www.tuskegee.edu/programs-courses/colleges-schools/cm/cm-public-health-course-requirements

The Alabama Department of Public Health's (ADPH) goal is to serve the citizens of Alabama with the highest quality of service possible. As part of this goal, we need your assistance with implementing the 2019 Community Health Issues Survey.

This survey is part of the Community Health Assessment  ADPH utilizes to identify health issues and challenges within Alabama's communities. Knowing what communities consider to be the most important issues will help ADPH better serve all communities in the future. The survey is for those older than 18 years of age and should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

Below are the short links for the survey.
