Undergraduate Public Health SGA

The UPH SGA hosts events throughout the year, many of which serve as great networking opportunities for undergraduate public health students to meet with SPHTM alumni. The SGA also works with the graduate school on events that helps current undergraduate students get to know the graduate school and the opportunities for a combined degree. In 2016, the association sponsored the "Future of American Healthcare" event, which provided insight into the U.S. healthcare system under the president-elect.
