We have a strong tradition of practice at the Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Our public health students put their academic skills to use through internships, practicums and service learning.
In admissions, we have a tradition of putting our skills to good use too. Each year, we close the office for a day and volunteer our services to a local organization.
Last Wednesday, we volunteered with Living Classrooms. Living Classrooms is a local non-profit “strengthening communities and inspiring young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training, using urban, natural, and maritime resources as living classrooms."
Our job last week was to help prepare for summer Shipboard Education sea/land excursions. We cleaned, surveyed and inventoried supplies – including about thirty tents. Some of us had never put up a tent before. Others are camping veterans. All of us worked hard and had fun.
