A Celebration of Student Research and Experience

May 27, 2014

PostersSecond-year MPH students will display their research from their Community-Based Master’s Projects at the Drexel University School of Public Health's annual poster presentations and awards ceremony in June. This is an excellent opportunity for the students to showcase the scholarly output of their public health science and community based practice that they gained this current academic year. 

Students, staff, and faculty from the entire Drexel community, as well as community preceptors and the general public, are welcome to attend. >> Photo Gallery from Last Year

The poster presentations are being held on Monday, June 9, 2014 at 4:00 PM in the Drexel Recreation Center.  Following the poster presentations, starting at 6:00 PM, the School of Public Health will host its annual awards celebration, which acknowledges the successes of faculty, staff, students and community members during the academic year.  The awards ceremony is being held in the Geri Lebow Hall room (31 – 32nd and Market Sts).

PostersDuring the poster presentations, second-year MPH students will be exhibiting posters from their Community-Based Master’s Projects (CBMP). The CBMP integrates the practical skills and culminating experience requirement of full-time Drexel MPH students as well as joint degree students. The CBMP is designed to incorporate public health academic studies with public health practice skills through a year-long service-learning experience.

Second year students identify and select a project with a well defined benefit to the public health community setting where they are assigned longitudinally -- working up to 2 days a week throughout the academic year.

CBMPs are developed by taking into account the host organization’s public health needs and SPH concentration/departmental specific learning objectives -- in epidemiology, biostatistics, community health and prevention, environmental and occupational health, or health management and policy.
