Public Health

The university monitors local, regional, and nationwide data and works closely with our public health experts at both the university and Vanderbilt University Medical Center to ensure our response to various infectious diseases continues to be grounded in our academic and research mission, and our commitment to science and expert guidance with the goal of protecting our community members. 

This page will be updated regularly with relevant guidance
