Public Health Ambassadors


In collaboration with the Connecticut Public Health Association’s Mentors on Request (MOR) and the UConn Program in Public Health, CT AHEC offers one-session presentations to secondary schools about topics and careers in public health. Students learn about the link between overall health and public health; the relationships between poverty and community wellness; historical achievements in public health; and the employment skills and opportunities within the field of public health.

To learn more about the Public Health Ambassadors Program and/or to see a presentation, please contact the CT AHEC regional center in your region.
