A great way to get your feet wet into the enormous field of Public Health is by attending the American Public Health Association (APHA) yearly conference. The conference brings together more than 12,000 professionals, educators, and students in Public Health to share their insights into the many facets of Public Health.

Since the APHA conference only happens twice while you are in the MPH program, I would strongly recommend that if you are able to attend both in your first year and second year that you do so. The experience of attending will help you to realize how broad the field of Public Health is and is a great way to network with fellow students and professionals while also being able to learn about the emerging issues and proven methods to improve Public Health.
