Community Outreach/Engagement Advocacy, or Activism The PHC will engage with the Yale community by promoting information on pertinent public health policies, vaccinations, etc. We will create flyers and send out information based on updating public health guidance, and host a series of events/workshops during Public Health Week (in April) and throughout the year. Additionally, we will organize a mentor/mentee program between grad students at the Yale School of Public Health and Yale College students--this will provide students with an opportunity to learn more about public health studies and shadow their mentors. Public Health Podcast Advocacy, or Activism The PHC Podcast will serve as a resource to the Yale community for constructive, facilitated discourse on public health. We hope to bring in people from diverse educational and cultural backgrounds--including faculty and students--for Q&As, interviews, debates, and more events. Podcasts will be uploaded once/month or twice/month.
