Practice work takes place every day within our School, across Baltimore, and around the world. 

Combining our education with applied practice offers meaningful experiences for our students and faculty, and tangible benefits for the organizations we partner with.

These collaborations take our knowledge into the field to advance public health practice and improve the health of our communities.

Our efforts generally focus on providing:

  • Education and Professional Development
  • Resources and Capacity Building
  • Partnerships and Consultations

We work with a wide range of partners who share our vision of a healthier and more equitable world, from community members in Baltimore to public health organizations and global leaders, to those within and outside the traditional boundaries of the public health field. 


Stop Harassment & Violence Against the Public Health Workforce

Ongoing workplace violence, harassment, and threats against public health agencies and professionals are stymying our public health system. Building on our "We Stand with Public Health" campaign, we are leading a coalition effort called STOP! to raise awareness and provide resources to help the public health workforce respond to workplace violence-related issues.


We Stand with Public Health

Our "We Stand with Public Health" campaign and webcast raised awareness of the pressures and threats many public health officials are facing, presented new data and analysis about the problem, and articulated a call to action to protect and revitalize the public health workforce.
