Students Talk Public Health
Undergraduate Students Answer the Question: What is Public Health?
January 30, 2014
Washing hands. Brushing teeth. Controlling outbreaks. What exactly is public health? It is a commonly asked question.
Our talented undergraduate students were recently asked to answer that very basic question in their Introduction to Public Health course, which is the first class for most public health students.
Their task was to highlight the various public health activities they do on a daily basis without even realizing it. The students used videos, social media and more to chronicle what they did on a particular day and show how it was public health.
Well, what is public health? It is all around us. It is good personal hygiene, and more. Let our undergraduate students explain.
