SHSP Prepares for National Public Health Week, April 5 – 8
StuHE and the SHSP Department of Public Health's 2021 National Public Health Week: Building Bridges to Better Health
The Student Healthcare Executives Club (StuHE) and the Department of Public Health in the School of Health Sciences and Practice (SHSP) are getting ready to kick off the 2021 National Public Health Week (NPHW) featuring a virtual speaker series of public health professionals. Each year since 1995, the first full week of April is designated NPHW by the American Public Health Association (APHA) to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to keeping communities safe and healthy. This year’s theme is “Building Bridges to Better Health.”
Registration is required for each of the speaker sessions, scheduled from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day, and a Zoom link will be provided upon registering. If you want to attend all the sessions, you will have to register for each one separately.
