November 2 Newsletter

Welcome to the PHS Club Newsletter

Hello Club Members and Public Health Enthusiasts! One of our new changes is the addition of a weekly club newsletter. In these newsletters, you will find tons of information regarding many different topics, including graduate school resources, club updates, social events, job/internship/volunteer opportunities, a case study about an ongoing public health event in the world, and much more, so be sure to read up on all this information!


We have many things that will be coming up in the future that we are very excited for!

First off are guest speakers. We have two guest speakers lined up for Nov. 2 and Nov. 16. On Nov. 2 we will have a PharmD student and on Nov. 16 we will have a Plant Pathologist Graduate student. They will talk about their experiences in public health and graduate school so be sure to show up and ask questions! Be sure to come on those days at 7:10 PM on ZOOM

Second, we have workshops on the weeks that we do not have meetings (Nov. 9 and Nov. 23) where we go over topics that are of interest to you, including graduate school applications tips, statement of purpose (SOP) assistance, letter of recommendations, information on how to get internships and experience, plus much more. Be sure to attend on Tuesdays at 7:10 PM on ZOOM

Make sure to add yourself as a member on the PHSC AggieLife Page! It has all our information and events!

Flu season is upon us! As UCDavis has set the requirement that all students get their flu shots by Nov. 19 (Get a free flu shot at the ARC campus clinic!), it is important to know what influenza is and why it is important to be vaccinated against it.

Influenza (flu) is a common contagious viral respiratory illness that can affect the nose, throat, and lungs. Flu viruses spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. Flu illness can vary from mild to severe. When severe, flu can result in hospitalization and even death. Some people are more likely to suffer serious flu complications, including older adults, pregnant people, young children and people with certain chronic health conditions. Flu vaccination can prevent illness and its potentially serious complications.


If anyone is interested in having a ├óÔé¼┼ôMember Spotlight├óÔé¼┬Ø, please email us! You will be included in the next newsletter and you can include information about yourself or a project you are working on.

If you would like to be featured, please include the following information in your email to us with the subject line ├óÔé¼┼ôPHS Club Member Spotlight├óÔé¼┬Ø: Name, Year, Major, Interest in Public Health/Career Goals, and if applicable, what research/project you are working on.

Get vaccinated for the flu before Nov. 19! The ARC vaccination clinic is offering free vaccinations regardless of insurance, booking is available through UCDavis E-Health Messaging. Find more information at:
