Public Health

Public health is the science of protecting and improving the health of students, faculty and staff to give everyone a safe place to learn and work.

At MATC, we achieve this by promoting healthy lifestyles, minimizing injuries and responding to medical crises that affect our community. 

Public health improves quality of life, helps everyone thrive, reduces suffering and saves money.
