For more than 50 years, the Office of Public Health Studies has educated public health professionals and conducted research that benefits the people of Hawai‘i and the Asia-Pacific region. Our 30 faculty are experts in topics ranging from infectious disease to chronic disease, from child health to end of life, from genetics to the environment, and from health promotion and prevention to treatment and services. We collaborate with 10+ branches of the Hawai‘i Department of Health (HDOH). In 2017, our Office secured $3.8 million in extramural funds from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HDOH, and others. Our faculty have collaborations with individuals in 70+ international universities.
