Center for Public Health and COVID-19
Public health touches every aspect of being human, from individual physical and mental health to economic stability. In response to the pandemic disrupting individuals and communities worldwide, the Milken Institute Center for Public Health is curating resources, expert insights and thought leadership, and actionable solutions for now and the months to come.
As a Center, we are harnessing the intelligence and expertise of our own team members focused on our programmatic areas of chronic diseases, sustainable food systems, and mental health. In areas where our expertise is more limited, we are mobilizing our network of public, private, and nonprofit sector partners to tackle the unanswered questions this pandemic has raised.
