Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health
UNE Chapter, Gamma Chi
Founded in 1924, Delta Omega is a national honorary society comprised of CEPH-accredited programs and schools of public health. 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.
In the fall of 2014, Gamma Chi was named the “New Chapter of the Year” by the Delta Omega National Council. This honor is awarded to new chapters, established for three years or less, that have displayed the most activity, service, and participation.
