About the College of Health Solutions

The College of Health Solutions (CHS) at Arizona State University is committed to translating scientific health research and discovery into practice to improve health outcomes through education, research and service. We equip students with the knowledge and skills to influence healthier lifestyle choices; develop creative interventions to improve the health of people and populations; analyze and translate large amounts of health data into solutions; and maximize the technology, science, business and application of diagnostics. Our research programs encompass basic science, discovery science, clinical trials, intervention science and measurement of health outcomes. In all cases, our faculty use interdisciplinary approaches to address the complex systems that underpin health problems. We are highly collaborative, transparent and team-oriented. Our innovative organizational structure includes translational teams that move science from labs into communities with evidence-based interventions that make a difference, as well as affinity networks where teams of people work together to improve methodologies and processes. All of our programs, in and out of the classroom, are designed with the goal of improving the health of people and communities.

Current training programs include behavioral health, biomedical diagnostics, biomedical informatics, executive and continuing education, exercise science, health promotion, health sciences, kinesiology, medical studies, nutrition, population health, the science of health care delivery, and speech and hearing science. Our programs are offered at ASU’s Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, West and Lake Havasu campuses, as well as on Mayo Clinic’s Scottsdale campus. We maintain research facilities in cooperation with multiple community partners, including an expansion of the Phoenix Biomedical Campus that is in development through a public-private partnership that will increase collaborative opportunities with private companies and offer an additional 200,000 square feet of space for research and clinical trials.

To focus our efforts, we have identified Grand Challenges, some of the most complex and difficult health challenges facing Arizona, that we will work to solve. Each Grand Challenge is huge in scope, takes advantage of our expertise in translational research, and requires transformative collaboration and innovation. From faculty to students, all are encouraged to contribute forward-thinking research and ideas to help solve the following Grand Challenges: promoting healthy lifestyles, improving mental health, and reducing barriers to health and health care. We are particularly interested in making an impact on populations with significant health disparities, such as veterans and people experiencing homelessness.
