Description

Students are truly the backbone of National Public Health Week. That’s why each year we designate one day of the week as Student Day! Student Day is Tuesday, April 5, 2022. There are plenty of ways to get involved in NPHW, either through developing your own events in your community, or through participating in APHA's Student Day events.

This panel, in partnership with APHA's Student Assembly, features a dynamic group of young professionals who navigated the pandemic to secure their public health roles. This webinar is intended for current students who are about to graduate, students interested in applying to graduate school or for those looking to make a career change. The audience will learn how to stand out during the interview process, how to network, experiences to highlight on graduate school applications, and much more!

This session was made possible in part through support from Walden University.
