The Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion at The Maxwell School at Syracuse University
was established in 2011 with a gift from Sid and Helaine Lerner. 

Our mission is to improve population health through applied research and evaluation, education, engaged service, and advocating for evidence-based policy and practice change. We work in partnership with students, researchers, community organizations, and the public to identify needs, develop programming, and deploy collaborative initiatives.
