Dalla Lana School of Public Health
Founded in 1927, the School of Hygiene, now the Dalla Lana School of Public Health (DLSPH), was born out of the tenacious belief and diligent work in public health education and measures, disease control, and vaccine development. It was through this work that many diseases such as diphtheria were controlled and eradicated in cities across Canada. The origins, history, and current work have proven to be a vital resource with great impact several times over the past century. The importance of public health is undeniable once again.
When you support the DLSPH Priorities Fund or the DLSPH Scholarship Fund, you support current and on-going research and knowledge translation of public health concerns, along with the hands-on training and education of the next generation of future public health leaders.
