Winter 2014 Public Health Day

Where: Fromm Hall Berman and Broad Conference Rooms
MPH students have the opportunity to gain meaningful real world practice not only in some of the Bay Area’s best public health agencies, but also in health organizations across the nation and the globe. In place of a research-based thesis, our students produce an original graduate project based on the culmination of their classroom learning, a 300-hour fieldwork internship, and a capstone synthesis that demonstrates mastery of the profession.
MPH Public Health day will showcase the students' capstone synthesis on topics such as: Program Planning, Program Evaluation and Health Policy, Health Disparities Access, Environmental Health and Agriculture, Food and Nutrition.
The Winter 2014 Public Health Day keynote speaker is Kathryn Hall-Trujillo from the Birthing Project USA. For more information about Ms. Hall-Trujillo's amazing work in public health, visit the Birthing Project USA's website.
The Birthing Projects have saved the lives of thousands of women and babies of color. These volunteers, in cities and towns across the U.S. and overseas, have encouraged better birth outcomes by providing practical support to women during pregnancy and for one year after the birth of their children. The Sister Friends provide one-on-one friendship, education and practical support to pregnant teens and women. “This has been a cost effective way of decreasing infant mortality and morbidity in the African-American community,” points out Kathryn Hall-Trujillo, MPH, founder of the Birthing Project USA. Under Hall-Trujillo’s direction, the Birthing Project model has been replicated in almost 100 communities in the U.S., Canada, Central America and Africa.
