Public Health Scholars Program
Explore the science of protecting and improving the health of families and communities, from local neighborhoods to entire countries or regions of the world. This program examines the promotion of healthy lifestyles, research for disease and injury prevention, and detection and control of infectious diseases. Examine how public health professionals are working to prevent problems from happening or recurring through the implementation of educational programs, policy recommendations and conducting research. Participants will learn how to curb health disparities and learn the perspectives of doctors, psychologists, frontline volunteers, and more.
Why will I LOVE this Program?
Imagine you’re a physician and you see the same symptoms and/or disease in your patients. Coincidence? The Public Health Scholars Program reminds us that geopolitical and socio-economical factors can impact patient health as well. We will learn about another side of health that is often hidden and broaden our minds to the forces affecting our future patients’ health.
