Public Health Student Alliance

The primary aims of the Public Health Student Alliance (PHSA) are to assist and represent students in their career and academic decision-making processes, and to encourage students’ participation in advocacy and other efforts directed at improving public health. Membership is open to any current Kent State University student enrolled in at least 3 credit hours. PHSA membership is appropriate for any student interested in public health, whether traditional or online, graduate or undergraduate, and regardless of major or emphasis area.
