Delta Omega

The JHSPH Alpha Chapter of the Delta Omega Public Health Honorary Society

Induction Ceremony 2019 - Dean with students

The Alpha Chapter of the Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health connects Johns Hopkins public health students, alumni, and faculty to recognize and develop leadership that advances and sustains the public’s health.

Delta Omega was founded in 1924 at the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health (now the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health) to promote excellence and to recognize accomplishments in scholarship and research.

Since the establishment at Johns Hopkins of the Alpha Chapter, the Society has expanded nationally to over 100 chapters with over 20,000 members. A National Executive Council, consisting of elected officers and delegates from the local chapters, administers the affairs of Delta Omega. The Society is governed by a constitution and set of bylaws.

This fellowship limits its membership to public health faculty, students and alumni. Each candidate must also meet membership criteria as set forth in the constitution and bylaws. The Society accepts only students meeting high academic standards. All candidates must also demonstrate a potential for making significant contributions to the field of public health.
