Tewksbury, MA- The Public Health Museum in Tewksbury announced the dates for its annual Outbreak! summer public health program. Running August 10-21, the program will move online this year with a digital format.

“We are excited to be able to make the program available for students in this engaging and interactive way” said Nandini Roy Tayebali, MPH. Rising high school juniors and seniors interested in a career in public health will find the sessions informative and convenient. 

The schedule offers a variety of workshops over two weeks and includes live Q&A with public health professionals, virtual tours, breakout rooms, flipped classroom sessions and incredible networking opportunities. Students are introduced to topics such as medical and bio-ethics, epidemiology, nursing, the role of family health centers in communities, occupational health and more.  In addition, students will work with alumni peer mentors to create blog posts and PSAs.

“The role of public health in our world has never been more important” said Dr. Kathie Domoto, president of the Public Health Museum, “and we can’t wait to welcome the next generation of public health professionals”.
 
Register today at www.publichealthmuseum.org. Registration closes June 30th.  The program is free of charge but a commitment is expected.
