Public Health: General Guide

Resources covering a range of topics for public health related interests.

What you will find here

This guide was created with your program and course in mind.

Public Health includes Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS), Health Services Administration and Policy (HSAP) and Epidemiology and Biostatistics (EPBI).

There are many resources available to you here at Temple and on the web. This guide has gathered some that I hope will be useful to you for your assignments, research and even personal interests related to health. 

The various tabs and links take you to sources in the labeled category. 

  • Want some help learning how to use one of our resources? See if we are offering a workshop. There are many offered throughout the semester and offered via zoom.

My contact information is here as well.
