Welcome to Emory's Center for the Study of Human Health

In a time when we enjoy the greatest knowledge of health in human history, individuals in our society are experiencing a declining trend in health and well-being. The Emory Center for the Study of Human Health was developed to help close that gap by expanding health knowledge and translating this knowledge to all aspects of life – for the individual and populations as a whole. The Center assembles the extraordinary faculty, researchers and thought leaders from across disciplines, departments, schools and institutions to bring this knowledge to Emory University students and inspire them to become leaders for the next generation in meeting challenges facing human health. The Emory Center for the Study of Human Health welcomes you to share what we know, to identify what we need to know, and to engage you wherever your career aspirations may take you.
