At this moment, a high school student is dreaming of a career in public health.
They don’t yet know that’s what they’re doing. They haven’t heard of Prevention Specialists. Or Epidemiologists. Or Environmental Public Health professionals. Or any of the myriad job titles that make up the public health workforce. They just know they want to help people by preventing suffering and improving health.
When this student discovers the field of public health, we’ll be here for them, ready to teach them the unique skills they need to fight preventable illness and injury. We’ll help them realize their dream of reducing anguish in the world, promoting health, and saving lives.
With your help, we can make it possible for the most promising students to learn vitally needed public health and health administration skills. We can make it easier for students to gain real-world work experiences and to broaden their perspectives through study abroad. We can ensure that our graduates step into today’s demanding jobs prepared to make an immediate difference.
