Mercy College has launched a bachelor of science program in public health, a program whose time has come, according to Joelle Stolte, MPH, PhD(c), chair of the new program.
“The program at Mercy College is the first of only three undergraduate public health programs in Iowa,” she said. “Traditionally, public health has been more of a master’s level program, but Mercy College recognized the urgent need to build a pool of public health professionals at the undergraduate level.”
