Valuable experience and vital contributions

Public health students have opportunities to participate in a wide variety of research-focused activities. The Students to Faculty Initiative (S2F) is a tool that connects students to current projects our faculty are conducting.

Every year during our annual Public Health Week, students also have the opportunity to showcase their research involvement by competing in the Dr. Jean Brender Poster Symposium.
