Emory University logo

Faculty in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Health Education at Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health work in diverse areas related to the socio-ecological determinants of health and disease. Areas of research include major diseases (HIV/AIDS, cancer, heart disease), specific populations (adolescents, women, minority groups, rural communities), various health promotion settings (schools, communities, churches, the Internet), and specific behavioral and social problems (substance abuse, tobacco control, nutrition, physical activity, injury prevention, health communication).


The department's more than 30 funded research projects are supported by the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Health Resources and Services Administration, Association of Schools of Public Health, and private foundations such as the American Legacy Foundation and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. 

The department is also supported by faculty in the schools of Medicine and Nursing and in Emory's graduate programs of anthropology, sociology,  and the Institute of Liberal Arts. Leading health educators and behavioral scientists from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Georgia Department of Human Resources, the American Cancer Society, the Arthritis Foundation, and The Carter Center serve as adjunct faculty who teach and work closely with students.
