Student and Professional Organizations

Pitt Public Health student associations are vibrant, diverse, and multifaceted, focusing on diverse topics in public health and the world at large. The members of our student organizations reflect the dynamic diversity of our student population in terms of gender, race, cultural identity, academic programs and departments, and individual areas of interest and research. They include the best and brightest students of our school, the current and future leaders in the field. Actively engaging in the student government experience allows students to influence their learning environment and make Pitt Public Health a true community of learners.
