Announcing the New MPC Training Program in Population Health Science
The Minnesota Population Center (MPC) is pleased to announce the launch of a new five-year training program in Population Health Science, funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). This innovative new program will train pre- and post-doctoral fellows in social and health science fields to build skills in interdisciplinary population health research. Congratulations!
Co-led by Dr. John Robert Warren (Department of Sociology) and Dr. Theresa Osypuk (Division of Epidemiology and Community Health), the program has 44 faculty mentors from four colleges and seven disciplinary departments. These mentors will prepare five pre- and two postdoctoral trainees to engage in a range of scholarship, coursework, professional development and intellectual activities to solve complex seemingly intractable population health problems.
