Health Equity - focuses on the systemic root causes of health disparities, focusing specifically on racial and ethnic health disparities. This certificate program provides students with an academic foundation for eliminating racial and ethnic disparities through community-based interventions, mobilizing communities where disparities exist, advocating for healthy public policy, and for culturally tailoring interventions that are appropriate to each specific population.

LGBT Individuals' Health and Wellness - focuses on a public health perspective on social, cultural, and individual factors that influence the health and well-being of LGBT communities. This certificate program is designed for students who are seeking to develop skills necessary to identify, analyze, and address health issues of the LGBT communities.
