Experienced Faculty With Diverse Backgrounds
More than 150 faculty members work within the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health. They have a wide range of expertise, from monitoring and assessing health risks and opportunities in populations, to helping build health-supporting social environments through policy, advocacy, and programs. They are educators, advisors, researchers, practitioners and community leaders. They come from backgrounds in quantitative, behavioral, environmental and social sciences, policy and government, exercise and health sciences and anthropology, among many other areas. They all work in collaboration with each other and with community partners, and are especially focused on the training and education of future leaders and practitioners in the public health fields.
Dr. Fortmann has an affiliate appointment in the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health as a Community Based Professor in the Epidemiology programs. In this role, Professor Fortmann’s work includes collaborating on research with SPH Primary Faculty members, mentoring junior faculty, and facilitate practice experience opportunities with SPH students.
