Collection Description

Biographical Note

Established in 1992, the Interfaith Health Program, formerly of The Carter Center and now the Rollins School of Public Health, works to foster partnerships between public health practitioners and faith communities through access to health programs and services, training, research, and network-building. Their work has mobilized resources for health communities in the United States and around the world.

The program came about as a result of the work of Dr. William H. Foege, former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Fellow for Health Policy at The Carter Center in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Miriam Kiser started work with the IHP in 1993 as a program coordinator during its first seven years at The Carter Center. In 1999, IHP became a part of the Rollins School of Public Health. Kiser served as senior program director until her retirement in 2021.

Scope and Content Note

The records of the Interfaith Health Program consist of early program files from The Carter Center days, reports, research files, grant applications, photographs from 2004 national meeting, accepted grant applications, including teaching files of Dr. Miriam Kiser.
