The Science and Art of Health Promotion
The Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion was established in 2011 to study and combat America’s deadliest killer: Our lifestyles.
Since its founding, the Center has launched projects across campus and in the larger Syracuse community to combat these killers and to build models that communities around the globe can replicate.
Munno’s first question: What is public health promotion?
Dennison: The World Health Organization defines Public Health as “all organized measures (whether public or private) to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong life among the population as a whole.” At the Lerner Center, we’re focused on the “promote” part of that equation. We conduct and encourage research and initiatives that focus on communicating best health practices to policy makers, organizations and, especially, individuals, whom we want to empower and encourage to make healthy choices.
