Western Public Health Association

About us: 

Western Public Health Association (WPHA) aims to provide resources and opportunities to undergraduate students that foster early awareness and involvement in the field of public health. Public health is often incorrectly categorized with the health/medical sciences and does not gain nearly the same level of awareness, which is one of the main reasons WPHA was established. We aim to provide our constituents with mentorship, networking, and writing opportunities in alignment with our mission to foster a community of like-minded students, educate members on the diversity of career options in public health, and amplify student voices on current public health issues.
