The conference provides students with professional development opportunities to interact with peers interested in public health issues and to present work from on-campus research, internships, and study abroad experiences.

Our keynote speaker Camara Jones, MD, MPH, PhD, focuses on the impacts of racism on the health and well-being in the U.S.   Dr. Jones is a faculty member at the Morehouse School of Medicine and Past President of the American Public Health Association.
