Each year, SPH sponsors an annual poster session and contest to coincide with Public Health Week (the first week in April) to highlight the many research, outreach, training, and service activities at SPH. The winning student entries receive an award and are invited to participate in the Delta Omega supported Student Poster Contest held during the annual APHA conference. Many SPH have participated in this prestigious event.
