3rd Annual Public Health Oscar Night

Colorado School of Public Health

Join students, faculty and community partners as we celebrate Environmental and Occupational Health at the 3rd Annual Public Health Oscar Night. Enjoy student short films, meet the nominees and mingle with the stars of Public Health! 

Communication is an essential component of public health practice and research. Students enrolled in the Introduction to Environmental and Occupational Health course at the Colorado School of Public Health gain “real world” experience in public health communication by producing short videos on public health topics of their choosing. 

 For the first time since students began producing YouTube videos for this course, we have organized an event to recognize the hard work that they devote to their projects. This semester, many of the student groups included interviews with community members and scientific experts - providing further reason to highlight these creative, thoughtful and often hilarious student projects.

This is the only chance you’ll have to attend the First Annual Public Health Oscar’s Night!
