2019 Research Expo

Students at the 2019 Research Expo

On Friday, September 13, 2019, the GPH Office of Student and Alumni Affairs and the GPH Office of Research hosted the Fall 2019 Research Expo, a College-wide event designed to provide students with opportunities to network with public health employers, as well as NYU faculty and coordinators from centers, labs, initiatives, and programs associated with GPH. This event was held on the final day of the GPH Career Week and had a record-breaking 240+ student attendees! Along with the career resources, students were able to learn more about on-campus GPH student clubs and GPH & NYU offices that will enhance their experiences while matriculated at NYU. In attendance were 36 different employers, many of whom were alumni, and 13 student clubs and GPH resources.

The event introduced me to a lot of interesting research going on at NYU and broadened my knowledge of possible careers in public health.

Attendees were even able to take free professional headshots for their LinkedIn, Handshake, or other professional networking profiles at a booth set up by the GPH Communications team. 

An episode for the IAMGPH podcast was also recorded with some of the employers including Mount Sinai Health System, Healthright, the Tobacco Research Lab, and many others. These employers discussed what their organizations do, what they are looking for in the ideal employee, how students can make themselves competitive candidates, and general advice for public health students who are beginning their job searches.

This was a really great way to spread the word about the Health and Human Rights Association (HHRA). We had a lot of interest and sign-ups from new and even second-year students who hadn’t heard about the Association.
