About Boston University Undergraduate Public Health Association

The Boston University Undergraduate Public Health Association (UPHA) is a student group that provides a community for undergraduates interested in public health from varying backgrounds (Biomedical sciences, Health Science, International Relations, Pre-med, etc.) to discuss public health issues of interest.  UPHA helps undergraduates navigate the wealth of public health-related academic options at BU, from the Geneva Internship Program to the 4+1 BS/MPH program.  UPHA also hosts public health lectures and discussions, and links students with the numerous public health events in and around Boston.  UPHA also acts as a liaison for students interested in public health to gain hands-on experience with other public health organizations in and around Boston.
