Our Fall 2018 alumni magazine takes an in-depth look at the efforts of the UIC School of Public Health to combat the opioid epidemic.  Our Community Outreach and Intervention Projects (COIP) has always been a leader in the field of treating drug abuse as a public health issue, but Professor Basmattee Boodram’s work to identify effective interventions is truly groundbreaking.

The magazine profiles the latest work of our faculty in Kenya, the school’s new course on the Epidemics of Injustice and the new Master of Sciences degree in Health Analytics. Readers can also check in on our recently announced new Mining Education and Research Center.
