SPH Committees

OHSU-PSU School of Public Health Committees

At our school, we take pride in fostering a community that prioritizes the well-being of its students, staff, and faculty. One of the pillars supporting this commitment are our public health committees. These committees serve as dynamic platforms dedicated to addressing various aspects of students education and engagement in SPH community.
