One of Indiana University's two new schools of public health has a new name.

The new school on the Indianapolis campus on Thursday was formally named the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health. The Fairbanks Foundation last year gave IU $20 million to help establish the school, which evolved from the Department of Public Health in the IU School of Medicine.

Another new school has been established at IU's Bloomington campus.

The Bloomington school will focus on rural communities, and the Indianapolis school will focus more on urban health and its connections to the medical school.

IU spokeswoman Diane Brown says the Indianapolis school will accept its first new students next spring. Some already are working toward degrees that will be offered by the new school.
