News and Events


Join us for the National Student Meeting on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018, in San Diego. The theme for this year’s theme, "From the Ground Up: Building Healthy Communities," encompasses the multifaceted nature of public health research and practice. From prevention to policy, epidemiology to environmental health, public health professionals are building a framework for healthy communities. The theme highlights the importance of working across disciplines and demographics to achieve the goal of improving community health. "From the Ground Up" also reminds us of the importance of engaging stakeholders from all levels of the community in our public health initiatives, be it a neighborhood, city, state or nation, building healthy communities is truly about working from the ground up.

During the meeting, attendees will hear from multiple public health professionals working to improve health in their local, regional and national communities. Attendees will also participate in professional development seminars and network with other attendees. The Student Meeting is an excellent chance for students to interact with peers and professionals from across the country and hear about current topics in the field of public health.
