Real World Public Health
Real World Public Health is an annual half-day interactive seminar co-sponsored by the Cambridge Public Health Department and the Institute for Community Health and geared toward Boston-area students interested in public health careers. Led by local public health experts, the event gives students the opportunity to discuss current scenarios with local leaders and learn more about the “real life” challenges and opportunities involved in local public health, beyond their classroom training. Events have included career panels of local public health leaders and practitioners, interactive workshops on issues such as cultural competency, health disparities, or youth health, and networking breakfast and lunch sessions.
This year’s event took place on April 4, 2012 at Cambridge Health Alliance’s Windsor Street Clinic, and included students from Harvard School of Public Health, Boston University School of Public Health, Tufts University School of Medicine, Northeastern University, and Emerson College.
