What Does Public Health Have To Do With You? Explore Future Careers and Majors in the Field.

The Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence (MCAE) and the U of M School of Public Health are partnering to present….
What Does Public Health Have To Do With You?
-Do you brush and floss your teeth?
-If you bike to class- do you where a helmet and use the bike lanes?
-If you drive to class- do you buckle your seat belt?
-If you walk to class- do you use the crosswalks?
If you do any of these things (and let’s hope you are doing some of them)- that’s public health at work! The UMN School of Public Health is one of the best in the country. Because we are such a vast program- many students may not know all that a degree in Public Health has to offer. If you have any interest in nutrition, community education, women’s health, children’s health, health disparities, or health policy, Public Health may be a great fit for you.
We invite you to join Sherlonda Clarke, Coordinator for Diversity and Experiential Learning Programs, for the workshop “What is Public Health?”. You will learn the basics of public health, how to become a competitive candidate for admission and scholarships, and why public health needs you.
