These efforts include news releases, social media campaigns, publications and other printed materials, as well as video and digital communications.

The Office also serves as the designated logo liaison for questions about UGA and College of Public Health logo and trademark usage.

  • Public Health Impact Archive

    Produced from 2010 until 2014 by the UGA College of Public Health, Public Health Impact (PHI) looked at today’s critical issues in the field of public health including obesity, sexually transmitted disease, tobacco use and more.

    The 25-minute TV show was hosted by CPH faculty members Dr. Cham Dallas and Dr. Phaedra Corso and featured experts from the College, the University of Georgia, and various organizations across Georgia who were actively engaged in protecting and improving the health of families and communities through promotion of healthy lifestyles, research for disease and injury prevention and detection, and control of infectious diseases. PHI, which first aired in spring 2010, was one of the longest running TV series on UGA’s television station, WUGA-TV.

    You can still view individual episodes from the series by visiting the UGA College of Public Health’s YouTube Channel.
