ASPPH at 12th Annual UC Davis Pre-Medical and Pre-Health Professions National Conference

ASPPH participated in the 12th annual UC Davis Pre-Medical and Pre-Health Professions National Conference held last weekend, October 11 and 12, with more than 8,000 prospective students in attendance. Dr. Harrison Spencer, president and CEO of ASPPH, gave the keynote address on public health Saturday morning which was also broadcast live. Ms. Allison Foster, deputy executive director at ASPPH, held a session on the SOPHAS application process and, with admissions representatives from Thomas Jefferson University, Harvard University, and University of California Berkeley, sat on a panel titled “How to Choose a School or Program of Public Health”. Other sessions on public health were held throughout the two-day event facilitated by our member schools and programs.

The two-day conference provided community-college, university, post-bac, and high school students, parents, and counselors with the information and skills necessary to succeed in the health-professions school admission process. This event is committed to supporting ethnically diverse and socio-economically under-served men and women who are shut out of the mainstream professional-school admission process, which is of particular interest to our member schools and programs.  The event allowed attendees to engage with admissions officers, financial aid officers, faculty, and staff of health professions, which includes IPEC members.
