UCLA Celebrates National Public Health Week

The Students of Color for Public Health student group at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health planned a series of events to celebrate National Public Health Week. All of the events were focused around the theme, Public Health Re(Action), with the aim of teaching participants how to be proactive in response to adverse social, political and economic contexts. The group’s overall goal was to build a community focused on achieving health equity for communities of color, LGBTQ, immigrants, refugees, persons with disabilities and the working class. Each session provided historical context, incorporated knowledge from both community organizations and researchers and helped equip attendees with actions to incorporate into their practice and research.  Learn more about the events.
