The mission of the Jefferson College of Population Health is to prepare leaders with global vision to develop, implement, and evaluate health policies and systems that improve the health of populations and thereby enhance the quality of life.
Population Health Matters is a quarterly newsletter designed to further the mission of the College of Population Health by highlighting initiatives that have policy implications at the local, regional, or national levels. Population Health Matters is governed by an editorial board composed of Thomas Jefferson University faculty and expert stakeholders.
