Brown to launch school of public health

This summer, Brown University plans to launch a School of Public Health. After ten years of planning and building, the School will pull together existing institutes, departments, and programs. The establishment of the School of Public Health should draw more funding and student talent, according to the University. Dr. Terrie “Fox” Wetle, associate dean of medicine for public health, will draw on her thirteen years of experience at Brown in her role as the dean of the new school.

"Well I’m very excited because I see this as an opportunity to continue to grow our research and educational programs to be a real service to the broader Rhode Island community, nationally, and internationally.”

Brown houses two other professional schools—the Alpert Medical School and the School of Engineering.
