School of Public Health 2021

School of Public Health 2021

The School of Public Health students take on diverse roles across the healthcare spectrum – as public health policy makers, hospital administrators, behavioral health specialists, epidemiologists, health educators, or athletic and fitness providers. Our students are our greatest strength and they are the future of public health in the State of Nevada and beyond. 

In June 2021, we became one of 64 accredited schools of public health in the United States. As we near the end of our first semester as a School of Public Health and the end of 2021, we ask for your help to further support our students with a gift to the School of Public Health General Scholarship.  Additional financial aid, especially in these challenging times, can make a huge difference in whether or not a student can complete their studies. 

Together, we can support Public Health students in attaining knowledge and participating through internships in community-based practice that improves health for populations locally and globally. We ask you to please consider making a gift to the School of Public Health general scholarship fund to assist students who, now more than ever, are facing dire need and struggling with expenses related to their education.

Our mission is to support the well-being of our community. Our faculty partners with many community collaborators on many important community-based programs and research, and our students are a central part of that. Your support this year will only help bolster that. For every $1,000 raised, we can provide another scholarship to another deserving student to help them in their academic journey. 

Your gift, no matter the size, will benefit our students immediately – and ultimately impact individuals and communities throughout Nevada. We thank you for your commitment to the School of Public Health.
