Health disparities will only be eliminated when we understand clearly what they are and why they exist.

The MPH Program sponsors awards that can be used to obtain hands-on international or domestic experiences in population health. These funds can be used to support travel and other expenses related to work with various health organizations. The field experiences typically take place during winter break in January, and can be used as the basis for developing an MPH capstone project.

The MPH Field Experience Fund Award application is due in October and the awards are made by a faculty committee in early November.
