The deadline to meet active status is Monday, April 24, 2023!

Texas Public Health welcomes anyone and everyone interested in public health issues. You don’t have to be a member to attend meetings or participate in activities; we will keep track of your participation.


Why be an active member?


In addition to getting a TPH t-shirt, becoming an active member allows you the chance to have significant contact with the professors and staff in the Public Health program and the School of Human Ecology, which often can prove useful for connections. You get to experience volunteering opportunities and truly see your positive impact on the community, and meet many like-minded people as well. Plus, you can run for an officer position the following year, and get free admission to our end-of-the-year Texas Public Health Banquet. 


If you have any issues that make you feel that you cannot meet these requirements but want to be an active member, talk to any of the officers to make special arrangements. There is always something to do, as long as you are committed.
