"Staying Unlimited in the Movement"
We are a student organization that seeks to enrich the educational experience of black public health students by engendering an environment where academic and professional excellence can coincide with minority interests. SBPHP serves as a liaison between black public health students and community leaders, in an effort to foster a sense of community, encouraging leadership while cultivating a sense of purpose within the field of public health.
SBPHP believes that by “staying unlimited in the [public health] movement” we will be able to positively impact the lives of students as well as the surrounding community and its members by focusing on three central themes:
- Community Engagement
