Who is Radical Public Health?

Radical Public Health (RPH) is a group of students, alumni, faculty, and staff from the UIC School of Public Health, joined by community members, that seeks to address the systemic, underlying causes of public health challenges and to consider more radical solutions. RPH hosts group discussions, guest lectures, film screenings, teach-ins, and panel discussions. See our web page and facebook page for more about us, or start a Radical Public Health group at your school.
