Undergraduate Public Health Association
The Undergraduate Public Health Association (UPHA) at Boston University is a student group that:
- Provides a community for undergraduates interested in public health from varying backgrounds (Biomedical sciences, International Relations, Anthropology, Pre-med, etc.) to discuss public health issues of interest.
- Helps undergraduates navigate the wealth of academic options that studying public health at BU offers, from the Geneva internship program at the World Health Organization to the 5-year BS/MPH program.
- Hosts public health lectures and discusses, and links students with numerous public health events in and around Boston.
- Acts as a liason for students interested in public health to gain hands-on experience with other student groups such as Peer Health Exchange and Project HEALTH and non-profits in Boston such as Our Bodies Ourselves and DotWell.
