PopHealthExperience

A Summer Enrichment Program for Rising 7th - 10th Graders
June 24-28 | July 8-12

What do homelessness, green space in cities, and the flu vaccine have in common? These are issues that public health professionals tackle every day.

The PopHealthExperience offers rising 7th-10th-graders an engaging and immersive introduction to the field of public health. Students will learn from Boston University School of Public Health faculty and graduate students about a range of public health topics, participate in hands-on research activities, discover career choices, and develop leadership skills.

What they’ll do:

  • Build confidence in their problem-solving skills.
  • Participate in fun teamwork activities.
  • Experiment, design, analyze, and test imaginative public health solutions.

What they’ll learn:

  • We’ll start by introducing the foundations of public health and then delve deeper into the areas of Biostatistics, Environmental Health, and Epidemiology.
  • We ’ll practice experiential learning activities such as disease detective cases where students test all of their newly acquired knowledge to determine what is the cause of an epidemic.
  • We’ll mentor students as they identify a public health challenge in their community and prepare a presentation with possible solutions.
