Community Involvement

As part of our overall mission, we offer educational programs and materials for community organizations and industry.

Customized displays, handouts and speakers are available to address issues regarding public health preparedness, infection control and bioterrorism preparedness.

If you’re considering enrolling in the Kent State College of Public Health, consider how community involvement can benefit your education. KSU is dedicated to providing students with the most relevant and real-world educational experience possible. Read below to see how the community gets involved with our College of Public Health in Ohio.
