Careers in Public Health Information Session to be Held April 6

Kent State University's College of Public Health; the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; and the Area Health Education Center are sponsoring an information session on careers in public health at Kent State on April 6. The event takes place from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in Room 317 of the Kent Student Center.

Public health is the term for a new and growing health care field focused on healthful living and prevention of disease. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that 250,000 public health jobs nationwide and 10,000 new public health jobs in Ohio will be created by 2020. Find out more about the variety of jobs included in this burgeoning field at the April 6 event.

The event is free and open to the public, and high school students are encouraged to attend.
