The College of Global Public Health OSAA, as well as the SGC, encourages your full participation in the student life of the College by engaging with one of the groups below:

PHE's mission is to give young people the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy decisions.  PHE members do this by training college volunteers to teach a comprehensive health curriculum to 9th graders in low-income public high schools throughout New York City.

PHLO members apply global public health learning outside of the classroom to inspire discussion and service in public health.


The mission of the BLSPHC is to create service projects that can aid in bridging the gap of knowledge among students and members of Black and Latino communities. This group helps to facilitate discussion among students that will allow them to better understand one another and the backgrounds of those they serve.
