Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion

The Lerner Center conducts, coordinates, and promotes population and community health research, education, and outreach focused on the social, spatial, and structural determinants of physical, mental, and behavioral health. The Center is housed within the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. With over 20 faculty affiliates from public health, sociology, psychology, economics, medicine, and public administration, the Lerner Center’s approach to research and education is both multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary.

The Lerner Center also develops and promotes Healthy Monday programs. Healthy Monday is a national public health initiative to end chronic preventable diseases by offering weekly prompts to support people and organizations in starting and sustaining healthy behaviors.
