    Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health Info Session

    Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 1:00 PM until 2:00 PMEastern Daylight Time

    Living through a pandemic this past year has brought everyone's focus to public health guidelines around the world. Here at Georgia Southern University, our very own Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health is dedicated to helping students prepare for careers in this increasingly popular discipline.  

    From conducting scientific research to educating about health, people in the field of public health work to assure the conditions in which people can be healthy. That can mean vaccinating children and adults to prevent the spread of disease. Or educating people about the risks of alcohol and tobacco. Public health sets safety standards to protect workers and develops school nutrition programs to ensure kids have access to healthy food.

    Public health works to track disease outbreaks, prevent injuries and shed light on why some of us are more likely to suffer from poor health than others.

    The many facets of public health include speaking out for laws that promote smoke-free indoor air and seatbelts, spreading the word about ways to stay healthy and giving science-based solutions to problems.

    Join faculty from the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health to hear more about the degree programs offered here at Georgia Southern.  Emphasis areas to be discussed will be Environmental Health, Global Health, Health Education and Promotion, and Epidemiology.  

    Registration is no longer available because the registration deadline has passed.
