Boston University’s School of Public Health is hosting an event for Boston area high school students from Dorchester, Mattapan, other sections of Boston to introduce them to the field of public health. This event will be run concurrently with the poster session for the MPH students who have recently completed their practicum.
Here is the rough agenda for the day:
Tuesday, December 8th, 2009
7:45–8:15 am: Continental Breakfast (Dental school, 3rd Fl, G302)
8:15–8:20: Welcome-Dean Meenan
8:20–8:40: This is Public Health-Harold Cox
8:40–9:00: Why Public Health?-Dr. Jonathon Woodson
9:00–9:50: H1N1 (clicker presentation/group activities)-PHAM Students
9:50–10:00: Agenda for the rest of the day-Alveta Haynes
10:15–11:30: Poster exhibition and Scavenger Hunt (School of Medicine, Hiebert Lounge 14th floor)
11:30–12:30 pm: Box lunch collection & Breakout sessions with BU students (MPH & Undergraduates)
We are looking for undergraduates with an interest in public health to join for the informal breakout sessions. There will be 4 breakout rooms, each with 25 high school students. We hope to have 2 MPH students, 2 BU undergrads, and one or two BU SPH faculty in each session. Specifically, we would like students to be prepared to talk about what led them to BU and their interest in public health. Students are welcome to come for the entire morning, but we are mainly interested in participation in the last session.
Please email Dr. Wayne LaMorte at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating.
