Although MCH SAGE started as an organization for MCH graduate students in the School of Public Health, it has grown to incorporate graduate and undergraduate students from not only various departments within the School of Public Health but also various schools and departments across the University. ALL with an interest in MCH are welcome, whether here on campus or online!

MCH SAGE offers mentorship to new MCH graduate students. New students are paired with current students for mentoring, especially during that critical first semester. MCH SAGE mentors assist MCH students with their transition to and connection with academic life.
