Health

At the University of Houston, “health” means more than eating our vegetables. It means coordinated care; community partnerships; policy reform; on-campus clinical resources; behavioral and mental health; and innovative engineering. In short, UH health means whole-person health. In the nation’s fourth-largest city, both on campus and through our partnership with the Texas Medical Center, UH is uniquely poised to offer a diverse, interdisciplinary education to its students — and innovative solutions for patients.

At UH, colleges devoted to pharmacy, optometry, nursing and social work educate future health care professionals focused on providing the best patient and client care. When the Health and Biomedical Sciences Building II is completed in Fall 2017, even more state-of-the-art resources and interprofessional collaboration that facilitate further community outreach and groundbreaking research will be within reach.

But we’re not only innovating health care through an interprofessional approach; our 14 colleges provide unique interdisciplinary opportunities. More than 11,000 UH are tackling health issues from different angles, including but not limited to the UH Law Center Health Law & Policy Institute — ranked 2nd nationwide by U.S. World & News Report in 2017 — biomedical innovations at the Cullen College of Engineering, and the College of Education’s HEALTH (Helping Everyone Achieve a LifeTime of Health) Institute, which addresses health disparities in our own backyard.

Your gift to the Health and Biomedical Sciences Building II and other UH health initiatives supports the healthy tenets that students and graduates pass on to their communities, whether that’s in Houston or halfway around the world.
