Public Health Student Association

The Public Health Student Association (PHSA) is the student led organization and student governing body at the UIC School of Public Health. PHSA’s roles are to act as a liaison between students and faculty, promote career development through networking events, promote student involvement in the school community, and represent the needs of students of the School of Public Health.

All enrolled students of the UIC School of Public Health are members of PHSA. Students are encouraged to volunteer and participate in all events. The PHSA Administration will be having all-student General meetings. Please watch the SPH listserv and the PHSA Blackboard site for details.

The Public Health Student Association (PHSA) is a non dues-paying membership organization. All students of the School of Public Health are considered active PHSA members. We encourage students to actively engage in monthly meetings and all SPH events.

Please feel free to contact any executive board member via email, and we would love to meet you face-to-face at one of our meetings and events!
