Future Voices of Public Health: A Student-Run Blog

Welcome to the Future Voices of Public Health!

We are excited to introduce the new Future Voices of Public Health website (previously housed on the Master of Public Health website) and we hope to continue to inform our communities about public health topics relevant to all disciplines.

We are a student-run collaborative blog where students can combine their classroom knowledge with the practical application of effectively communicating information to other professionals as well as the general public.

Since public health is an interdisciplinary field, authors propose and write topics on various sectors of the public health field (i.e. health-care policy, health disparities, environmental health, internship experiences, etc.).
