PHASE

P H A S E

Public Health Association for Service and Education

The student-run service organization of the Penn State MPH Program

Service dedicated to addressing community need is a powerful learning tool; members have the opportunity to reflect on relevant course material, develop a broader perspective of the public health field, and nurture their sense of humanitarianism.

The purpose of the Public Health Association for Service and Education (PHASE) is to increase public health literacy through education, advocacy, PHASE-sponsored events, and community outreach within the Penn State College of Medicine and Milton S. Hershey Medical Center as well as the greater Central Pennsylvania community.
