2013 Undergraduate Education for Public Health Summit

On Saturday, November 2, ASPPH and the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) co-sponsored the third annual Undergraduate Education for Public Health Summit in Boston, MA. This year’s Summit had the largest audience in the event’s history, reflecting the interest of the growth of undergraduate education for public health. The program brought together public health educators, professionals, and students involved or interested in undergraduate public health education, including over 55 presenters representing academic institutions with undergraduate public health programs, CEPH-accredited schools and programs of public health, and organizations working closely with undergraduate public health education initiatives. Attendees listened to presentations and discussed issues on innovative uses of technology, creative curriculum design and teaching methods, the Educated Citizen and public health, global health teaching and learning, faculty training, experiential learning, and educational pathways. In addition, attendees engaged in dialogues on the continuum of public health education, new opportunities for undergraduate public health, and students’ perspective on undergraduate education for public health. The poster and networking session provided an additional opportunity for attendees to share information and interact.
