Public Health Club (PHC)

The Public Health Club (PHC) helps bring awareness to the student body on topics outside of optometry, whether that be related to the specific workings of government or other areas of healthcare. The executive council of the PHC serves as liaisons of the American Public Health Association.

The PHC is a relatively new club. It was created just 3 years ago to support our commitment and interest in public health.  As a new club, we are still developing and open to new ideas for activities. It requires a very minimal time commitment, as we know students are busy and this may be a concern.
