Centers & Programs
The Flint Initiatives Program, funded by the UM SPH dean, serves as a bridge between the Flint community and UM SPH expertise and resources to collaboratively support the ongoing water crisis response. The work includes coordinating the UM SPH Flint Task Force, connecting SPH faculty and students to Flint service projects, and serving as a liaison for SPH-Flint partnership exploration and facilitation, especially for public health practice projects.
The Future Public Health Leaders Program (FPHLP) is a CDC funded program, designed to encourage underrepresented college students to consider careers in public health. The program is a 10-week residential summer program that begins in late May and runs through early August.
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.
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.
