Student Association for Public Health (SAPH)
UNE’s Student Association for Public Health was formed in the 2009-2010 academic year by public health students aiming to open the lines of communication between faculty and students, and to participate in the development of the public health program.
SAPH is intended to be the voice of the students. Participation in SAPH allows students to communicate their thoughts and recommendations about the public health curriculum. All students accepted into the Public Health Program are automatically granted membership in SAPH.
Member meetings are conducted online and recorded, at the direction of the SAPH President, using the free web-conferencing and collaboration tool available through UNE called Blackboard Collaborate.
The President of SAPH, or an appointed representative, is an invited member of the SCPH Advisory Committee and SCPH Program Faculty Meetings. Students are encouraged to forward their ideas and discussion topics to the President and other officers. Comments and suggestions can also be forwarded directly to the Program Manager, Laudan Ghayebi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Ghana health partnership and immersion program
The Mission of the Ghana Health Partnership (GHP) is to improve the health care capacity and advance health status for the population of Ghana through joint and collaborative research, education and programs in health promotion, care management, and workforce development. UNE, the Ghana Health Service, the University of Cape Coast, and several US based health organizations have all partnered in this movement.
The Ghana Health Mission began in 1996 at the University of Massachusetts, and it was brought to UNE in 2008. Since its inception, UNE missions have included interprofessional teams of health professions students and faculty.
