Public Health Action Support Team (PHAST)

PHAST is a student-driven group with a faculty advisor whose mission is to make public health practice opportunities more accessible to students. The main objective is to actively assist local and state health departments in meeting the demands of certain public health events, disasters and investigations.

Region V Public Health Training Center

The Training Center provides continuing education to those who promote and protect the health and quality of life in our communities by offering face-to-face and online instruction to students drawn from state and local health departments, community-based organizations, health delivery systems, and health plans, as well as those studying public health.

Practice Advisory Council (PAC)

The PAC engages practice partners and University of Michigan School of Public Health (UMSPH) faculty, staff, and students to inform the school’s research, teaching, and service so that it supports the current and emerging needs of state and local public health. The PAC does this by contributing to the three focal areas of the UMSPH Office of Public Health Practice (Practice Office): experiential learning, community-academic partnerships, and workforce development.
