Diversity & Inclusion

At SPH, we believe that everyone has the right to live a healthy life. We recognize that systemic racism and oppression has led to health disparities, and we commit to making diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice central to our mission. This comprehensive approach is intended to influence every aspect of our school including education, hiring, fundraising, research, and community engagement.

“The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social condition”. — World Health Organization 1946

Racism is a public health crisis. In its systemic form, it keeps people of color from thriving by erecting barriers to wealth, education, decent housing, clean environments, access to healthy foods, and many other areas.

Watch how Lauren Eldridge, Director of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, and faculty and staff are committed to making SPH an antiracist school.
