Department Events

The Department of Public Health Sciences holds regular events and seminars featuring different speakers and topics that address broad issues impacting health and overall well-being of populations across the globe. We host speakers who are leaders in public health and also speakers across different disciplines such as mathematics, bioethics, and business, to highlight the truly interdisciplinary and collaborative field of public health.

These events and seminars promote an exchange of information and discussion among professionals, faculty and students. The department welcomes and encourages attendance from faculty, students, staff and community members from all backgrounds. Public health after all is… public.
