APRIL 2 – 8, Tweet-A-Thon: Students, staff, faculty, alumni, and friends are encouraged to participate in National Public Health Week (NPHW) by tweeting on various public health topics. Throughout the week, we will be tweeting public health trivia questions and facts to our SPHIS community.

Drop-off boxes will be available on both the Belknap and HSC campus.
