A day in the life of a Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Student can vary depending on the student’s program and year in a program. However, certain things (like where to get coffee) remain the same. The JHSPH Instagram Account is a great way to learn about student life and exciting events on campus.

Recently, MPH student Zahra Zeinali did an Instagram Takeover. I highly recommend watching her Instagram story below in the YouTube video to experience a Full-time MPH student’s typical day.


If you are a current student and are interested in doing an Instagram Takeover, please contact Marisa Russell.

Since the announcement that the Center for Communication Programs and the Bill and Melinda Gate’s Foundation sent a joint proposal for a mosquito emoji had reached semi-finalist status with the Unicode Consortium, I’ve been faithfully tracking the mosquito’s progress. Anytime there was an update, my co-workers were very quickly informed. (You’re welcome, team).

I am happy to share the news that the mosquito emoji has passed and will hopefully begin appearing in coding this summer with the 11.0 emoji release. We will soon be able to help spread important public health mosquito warnings with an emoji.

Other public health tweets will now be able to include a soap, DNA, petri dish, test tube, fire extinguisher, microbe, super heroes and more.

We are now two weeks away from the next deadline! March 1 is the deadline for the PhD and MHS in the Graduate Training Programs in Clinical Investigation.

If you have any questions concerning your application, be sure to contact us at or via phone Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST.

When students begin their degree program at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, they are usually thinking of what they are about to learn and the changes they hope to make in the world. They don’t usually think about falling in love. But that’s exactly what two MPH students did when they met at the annual Activities Fair in 2007.

Tara Loyd, MPH ’08 and James Keck, MD, MPH ’08 came to the Bloomberg School with two very different plans. Tara was focusing on a public health career in global health while James was completing the MPH/Preventative Medicine Residency program.

Read how their love story changed their public health careers and how it is making a difference in their family life.

Career Fair Employeer interacts with student
