The Master of Public Health (MPH) program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham collaborates with community-based organizations such as health and social service agencies, and neighborhood associations, as well as with health systems, businesses, professional organizations and local, state, and federal governmental agencies. We connect such organizations with MPH students who are planning their practicum experiences and culminating MPH projects as well as with faculty who have service-learning activities within their courses.

Together the community organizations and the faculty plan the students’ public health service work and decide the most effective way for students to connect service to our public health curriculum. Community partners provide detailed information of their work so that the students’ service fits their current needs.

If you have any interest in working with one these partners, please contact the organization directly. There is no guarantee that a Highlighted Community Partner will be able to accommodate you as a volunteer. It is important to communicate with the contact person at the organization to find an opportunity that works for both you and the partner. Be sure to discuss why you would like to volunteer, the specific tasks you would like to perform as a volunteer, and the dates and times you are available (including the start and end date).
