MPH Graduate Public Health Forum

The MPH Graduate Forum takes place at the end of each academic year. Graduating students present a formal poster about their capstone to an invited panel of judges, who select one student to receive the Award for Excellence in Community Health. Following the student presentations, there is a reception where students have the opportunity to celebrate and share their accomplishments with family, friends, and community partners.
