Delta Omega exists to encour­age research and schol­ar­ship among grad­u­ate stu­dents of pub­lic health and to rec­og­nize attain­ment and achieve­ment in the field of pub­lic health. With over 50 active chap­ters, Delta Omega and its mem­bers are ded­i­cat­ed to ensur­ing the qual­i­ty of the field of pub­lic health and to the pro­tec­tion and advance­ment of the health of all peo­ple.

UNE’s chap­ter of Delta Omega, Gam­ma Chi, was estab­lished in the spring of 2014. On an annu­al basis, a select num­ber of top-per­form­ing Mas­ter of Pub­lic Health (MPH) stu­dents are grant­ed mem­ber­ship into Gam­ma Chi. Mem­bers enjoy a vari­ety of ben­e­fits, includ­ing access to a num­ber of lead­er­ship devel­op­ment and pub­li­ca­tion oppor­tu­ni­ties, pro­fes­sion­al net­work­ing events, and dis­count­ed resources.
