Both medical care providers and public health agencies are increasingly using informatics and big data tools to create and share digital information. There is a need to proactively identify, monitor, and improve a range of medical, environmental, and social factors relevant to the health of communities. The PhD in population health informatics would equip me in transforming wide range of population health-centric information exchange and analytics activities to the community.
