Are you a public health graduate student looking to bolster your academic experience with a funded student project that tackles real-world issues?

The Northwest Public Health Training Center at NWCPHP is now accepting graduate student applications for field placement and collaborative project opportunities in Washington, Alaska, Idaho, and Oregon. Approximately 20 proposals will be funded up to $1,500 each. These projects help students gain practical, hands-on experience in a public health practice setting, and allow them to apply theory and lessons learned from the classroom.

Twenty public health graduate students from around the region recently completed their field placements and collaborative projects during the 2016–17 school year. Students worked on a variety of topics, including: building capacity for working with tribes, medical debt as a determinant of homelessness, an evidence-based IUD self-removal guide, traumatic brain injury among American Indians and Alaska Natives, and safe consumption sites in King County, Washington.
