[SEHA] Weekly USPHA Updates

See below for events of interest and those organized by the Undergraduate Student Public Health Association.

Take special note of the Mentor event next week, Thursday April 26.  There will be students from various programs and departments across the School of Public Health to talk about their pathway into and through (so far) their graduate degree.  This is a great opportunity to learn about what you might do within the field of public health following your degree and to network with graduate students.  Oh, and free food!
