Excellent Opportunities at RSPH

Many students and faculty members of RSPH are involved with several Atlanta-based organizations like the Carter Center and CARE. They are also privileged to partner with the American Cancer Society and the CDC in joint efforts. These are highly unusual opportunities that RSPH is able to make available to its students. The six programs that students pursue include: Environmental and Occupational Health (EH), Global Health (GH), Behavioral Sciences/Health Education (BSHE), Epidemiology (EPI), Biostatistics (BIOS), and Health Policy and Management (HPM).

Programs unique to Rollins are the Global Epidemiology, Global Environmental Health, and the joint EH/EPI MSPH program. What’s more, the Rollins School of Public Health plays an integral role in meeting the goals of the Center for Global Safe Water in seeking “to improve access to safe water and reduce the burden of waterborne disease and death.”

History of the School’s Name-Sake

O. Wayne Rollins, a self-made entrepreneur and innovator, along with his brother John Rollins, were successful in several business ventures including television stations, oil field services, boat manufacturing, pest control, and real estate.

After Rollin’s death in 1991, his sons continued the legacy of their father. In fact, several Rollin family members have served on the Emory University Board of Trustees.

In 2007, the O. Wayne Rollins Foundation, along with Grace Crum Rollins, gifted $50 million to the school, allowing the physical dimensions of the school to double in size by adding 160,000 square feet. They completed the expansion in May 2010, and the new building opened in October of the same year.
