Student Involvement in RIPHA

Students in Rhode Island are the future of public health. In your careers, you will address pressing issues ranging from nicotine prevalence to the health effects of climate change. RIPHA is your bridge from college or graduate student learning in the classroom, to a professional working in the field. 

RIPHA Chapter Public Health Clubs

Students across Rhode Island are starting their own RIPHA Public Health Club chapters. Chapter clubs follow a project based model, which is action oriented, rather than only discussion. Each club provides students with the opportunity to develop and carry out public health projects on campus and in the surrounding community.

See how you can do public health work on your campus through a chapter club.
