Outbreak! Summer Program in Public Health, Grades 11-12

Outbreak! is a free, week-long, interactive summer program to introduce students entering Grades 11-12 to the history and importance of public health. Students will learn about epidemiology, investigate a simulated disease outbreak, learn about the wide range of public health careers, and take field trips to the State Public Health Laboratory in Jamaica Plain and the Lowell Community Health Center. It will be held August 6-10 at the Public Health Museum in Tewksbury, which strives to preserve records and artifacts from our nation’s public health history, educate the public about the achievements and contributions of public health, and inspire people to build upon the past and continue to advance the future of public health. Applications are due April 13.
