At the Rollins School of Public Health (RSPH), students learn to identify, analyze, and intervene in today's most pressing public health issues. The school's location in Atlanta, referred to as the "Public Health Capital of the World," also is home to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; CARE; the national home office of the American Cancer Society; The Carter Center; the Arthritis Foundation; and numerous state and regional health agencies.  The School is also part of Emory University's Woodruff Health Sciences Center, providing access to the patient care, teaching, and health-related research programs of that organization.
