PHield Trips

Group at PHield

Trips to organizations involved in public health activities provide students with valuable exposure to public health in practice. PHield Trips are available to all School of Public Health students. Our most common trip is to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) (pictured) in Austin to hear from division employees about their work and tour lab facilities. Other trips have included the Brazos County Health District, City of College Station Water Treatment Facility, Harris County Health Department, Williamson County and Cities Health District, and DSHS Region 7 Office.

Watch for emails from the Office of Public Health Practice for PHield Trip announcements!
