Preventive Medicine and Population Health

Welcome to the Department of Prevention Medicine & Population Health. This department serves as an intersection between academic, clinical operations and community collaborations to improve population health starting in East Texas and beyond. We offer a variety of lifestyle change programs, such as Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), Hypertension Workshops, Hypertension Monitoring/Support, Active Living After Cancer, Your Diabetes and Your Heart and Tobacco Cessation. In addition, this department has received several cancer prevention outreach grants, which are used for programs such as the cervical cancer project, the colorectal cancer prevention project, and the breast cancer screening project. This department recently became a part of the new School of Medicine.
