Collaborative for Promoting Health and Wellbeing


The purpose of the Collaborative is to promote health and wellbeing in the University community and other particular populations through collaborative projects between PHS and its partners. This aligns with the Department of Public Health Sciences’ mission to “foster research and educational collaborations with clinicians, researchers, other professionals, and communities to improve health equity and overall population health and wellbeing.”1

A major focus of the Collaborative since its inception in 2018 has been collaborations involving PHS students including MPH student Applied Practice and Integrated Learning Experiences. This aligns closely with one of the UVA Master of Public Health Program’s goals: “To offer a variety of public health opportunities to students through applied and integrated learning that will prepare them for roles in the public health workforce.”2 Some of the projects have included designing and delivering surveys and conducting evaluations with Hoos Well – the UVA employee wellbeing program – and producing health and wellness resource videos for children and families at Boys & Girls Club.
