The School of Public Health is a place for students who are passionately invested in advancing and safeguarding the health and well-being of our most vulnerable populations. As the next generation of healthcare leaders, our students share a common drive to improve outcomes and eliminate health disparities for people in Nevada, the nation, and beyond.
Since the first case of COVID-19 was discovered in Southern Nevada, our faculty, students, and alumni have helped lead community efforts to mitigate the impacts of the virus, provide evidence-based information to those who need it, and conduct testing and vaccination programs. A few points of pride:
- The SPH deployed more than 200 UNLV students to lead contract tracing efforts in Southern Nevada;
- The NV Minority Health and Equity Coalition launched the COVID-19 One Community/ One Response Campaign to reduce the spread in Nevada, with specific emphasis on communities at greatest risk;
- SPH faculty and students have been at the forefront of news coverage, highlighted by more than 500 different news media outlets in the last year.
We understand that everyone has been profoundly affected by the global pandemic, but we need your support now more than ever. As members of the Public Health Alumni Association, our goal is to foster the advancement of the School’s initiatives, deepen the already strong connection between the community and our alumni base, and provide opportunities for the next generation of public health leaders. We’re proud of the difference we’ve made over the past 18 months, but we can’t do it without your help.
To encourage the best and brightest minds to pursue a career in public health and healthcare, the Public Health Alumni Association is launching its first-ever scholarship fundraising campaign. This scholarship will provide much-needed tuition and support for a deserving undergraduate or graduate student in the upcoming year. Will you join us in shaping the future and reaching our goal of $5,000? Your contribution of $20, $50, $100, or $500 will help our students succeed in and out of the classroom.
DONORS OF $25.00 OR MORE WILL RECEIVE A FREE SPH ALUMNI POLO SHIRT!
