The Center for Health Sciences

Bringing the best of learning, research, and partnership together


Improving healthspan for all

The Center for Health Sciences—the anchor of Northeastern’s Charlotte campus—is focused on improving healthspan for all, so that people live not just longer but better lives, even when coping with disease or disability.

With our deep roots in the region, we work with other enterprising organizations looking for creative ways to build healthcare talent and collaborate on R&D and community-based healthcare solutions. Together, we can build the next generation of sharp, experienced, compassionate healthcare leaders and providers.


An integrative, proactive approach to health that considers a person’s biology, lifestyle, and environmental factors in order to prolong and enhance quality of life.


We teach skills across disciplines

We equip future health leaders, clinicians, advocates, researchers, and entrepreneurs with the skills to innovate and collaborate across disciplines.

We champion a people-centered approach to health, well-being, and continuum of care—one that’s informed by evidence-based research.

We form partnerships to solve challenges

We partner with local and regional companies, nonprofits, and policymakers to solve health-related challenges and disparities.
