The Student Handbook for the Department of Public Health Sciences provides information about program objectives, degree requirements and departmental procedures. Students are subject to the requirements and policies outlined in the handbook based on their year of matriculation. If a currently enrolled student elects to fulfill revised degree program requirements, the student must obtain approval from the graduate chair who, in turn, will need to notify the Graduate Division Student Services Office via memo.
The Hawai‘i Chapter of Delta Omega invites all interested Public Health Master and Doctoral Students to submit an abstract for the National Delta Omega Poster Contest Display at the APHA 2016 annual meeting in Denver. Students whose work is selected for a national award will receive a $350 cash prize from the national Delta Omega Honor Society, which the OPHS will match for a total of $700. Student awards will be made during the Delta Omega Social Hour. In addition, students will have the opportunity to present their poster during the APHA scientific poster sessions. Student abstracts will also be published on the Delta Omega National Webpage.
All abstracts must be submitted via email for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org by 17:00 (5:00 pm) Friday, April 1, 2016. No late or incomplete submissions will be accepted or considered.
Students from our department have been national Delta Omega student poster contest award winners for 7 of the past 8 years. We look forward to your submissions.
Please contact Dr. Katz if you have any questions.
