The five-year agreements lay the groundwork for faculty and student exchanges as well as joint teaching, research and outreach with Nanchang University, Wuhan University, Xiamen University in China and the Daejeon Health Institute of Technology in the Republic of Korea.

Texas A&M School of Public Health also signed a three-year agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to assist in capacity building in public health nutrition for the IAEA and its member states around the globe. Projects will include joint research activities and the development of educational materials and training in public health research methods with the IAEA Human Health Division.

“Global health is public health. In our increasingly interconnected world, it is essential for our students and faculty to be able to work across international boundaries to improve the health of populations,” said Dean Jay Maddock of the Texas A&M School of Public Health. “These new partnerships will provide numerous opportunities to enhance our research, teaching and practice across the globe.”
