Student Poster Sessions

Delta Omega began sponsoring the annual Student Poster Session in order to encourage and recognize the public health leaders of tomorrow. Each year, twenty-nine students are selected to present their research during the Delta Omega Student Poster Session through the Academic Public Health Caucus of the American Public Health Association’s Public Health Exposition. While students do not need to be members of Delta Omega in order to compete, they must attend schools and programs with active chapters and be approved by the respective chapter to compete.



Students listed as 2021 poster presents will present at the virtual APHA session in October 2021.

Information about the 2022 poster session will be available in early 2022.
