CPHHS Club Spotlight
Public Health Club
The Public Health focus revolves around educating the student body on the importance of public health and facilitating partnerships with organizations in the community to promote public health. We hold
various fundraisers throughout the year to support organizations in the community such as CARDV. PHC also partners with the Boys and Girls Club of Corvallis to spend time educating younger generations about public health during their after school program at Hoover Elementary. Every year we host a week of public health-related activities to celebrate National Public Health Week, including engaging events such as documentary screenings and State Capital visits to learn about health policy. We are always looking for more students to join our club and to help us develop new ideas to facilitate campus-wide engagement in public health!
You can join our listserv to receive updates on club activities at http://lists.oregonstate.edu/mailman/listinfo/publichealthclub. Come join us to learn more about the club at our meetings during even academic weeks at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, in Waldo 400.
Student Leadership and Involvement operates on the first floor of the Student Experience Center (SEC 112) and is intended to help students connect at OSU. For students looking for a place to study or relax between classes, this space offers comfy chairs, bean bags, a kitchenette, some computers, games, and coloring books. On May 10, there will be therapy dogs in the lounge to help students destress.
