WHY CHOOSE UCONN?
Public health careers for the 21st century will require competence in the interprofessional coordination of skills relevant to systems-level approaches to health that focus on our environment and social structures. You can join students, alumni, faculty and community partners who are at work shaping our public health system and services. When thinking about public health around Connecticut, it’s hard to exaggerate our program’s influence. Our alumni and faculty are found in various positions across the university throughout the state and nation. Graduates hold positions as:
- health directors and staff in state, local, and federal health departments
- managers of community health, social service, and nonprofit organizations
- managers and scientists of pharmaceutical firms, health insurance companies, and hospital systems
- educators and researchers
- community-based physicians
- public policy advocates
FALL 2019 12th WEEK ACTIVITIES
Dr. Barry Levy’s talk scheduled for tonight, November 12th, is postponed due to the forecast calling for sleet and ice. We are working to reschedule his visit. Other 12th week activities for Wednesday and Thursday are not affected.
Join students, faculty, staff and friends as we step away from our regular schedule of classes to come together to learn about significant public health concerns and expand our interactive networks. There will be a speaker on climate effects on health, another on social justice and health and one highlighting the work of Dr. Richard Stevens, plus competing student teams developing proposals on health equity, advisement session time, and an introduction to the new program, Portfolium.

Thanks to all that stopped by to visit us at our table at APHA or attended our reception at night. It was great to socialize and reconnect with old friends as well as make new acquaintances. Our many posters and presentations were well received. Adekemi Suleiman, one of our Ph.D. students, won first place in her section New researchers/practitioners in OHS poster competition. Congrats, Kemi!
Another year that our public health students, department faculty and staff joined with University Health Professionals (UHP) as partners with End Hunger NE to package meals. 70 volunteers packaged more than 10,000 meals that have been distributed to local shelters and food pantries. Thanks to all who volunteered!
