Public Health Resources


Epidemiology and Biostatistics Professional AssociationsThese professional associations often serve as a core resource which practicing professionals turn to for networking, continuing education, publications, and annual conferences and meetings. This is also something that students should be looking to because these organizations often have reduced rates for students and this is often a good way to become familiar with other colleagues in your field.

Meetings and Conferences: Not only do professional attend meetings to learn what colleagues are doing and to network with collaborators and others, these meetings often provide us a forum for presenting papers, symposia, and posters to describe our own work to others.  Here is where we get immediate professional feedback on our research and other scholarly activity.

Public Health Resources In Our Area: We often talk about "location" as one of our great advantages as a school of public health, and the listing on this page gives you a chance to see how resource rich this area really is.  These resources also provide us an opportunity for research and service collaborations as well as internship sites for students.

Public Health Twitter Feed - Live: There are many sources of information in public health.  One of these is Twitter, an online social networking tool that allows us to send 140 character messages.  Twitter is currently used by almost 700 million people globally to send messages covering many topics.  One of those topics is public health.  Follow this link to see a live twitter feed of approximatly 40 varied sources of public health information.
