The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health deeply values diversity, and our administration is committed to ensuring a safe and inclusive environment for all students, staff, and faculty. As Halloween approaches, we ask students and student organizations to be sensitive to the impact of their actions, and we support the following message:

“When choosing costumes and promoting events this Halloween, please avoid themes and imagery that perpetuate racial, cultural, and gender stereotypes, or stigmatize marginalized groups.”

Alumni-Student Networking & Career Mentor Roundtable

Thursday, October 30
Kresge Cafe

The Alumni-Student Networking and Career Mentor Roundtable is an opportunity for alumni to impart career and professional networking advice to current HSPH students. Students will have the opportunity to mingle with alumni at the start of the event and then meet in small groups with alumni from similar interests and desired fields of practice.

The intent of the program is for students to connect with an alumni mentor and continue the mentoring relationship during their time at HSPH.

The goal of an alumni mentor is to help students and answer questions about careers in public health and offer support and guidance to them as they move through their graduate studies. Local alumni are in a unique position to provide a deeper level of guidance.

Alumni interested in attending the attending the Alumni-Student Networking and Career Mentoring Roundtable, please RSVP by Friday, October 24. Be sure to update your current business information, including title and field of practice. A very brief description of your work experience complements your mentor profile.

Harvard School of Public Health
Yerby Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The Harvard School of Public Health is now accepting applications for the 2015-2017 Yerby Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. This program is designed to increase diversity among individuals who wish to pursue academic careers in public health. Working closely with accomplished faculty mentors, Yerby fellows gain experience and skills in areas critical to succeed in an academic environment, with an emphasis on research, publication, and grant writing.

Applicants should be members of a minority group that is underrepresented in academic public health; individuals from other backgrounds that would contribute to academic diversity, including those with disabilities, will also be considered. Candidates must have received (or be about to receive) a doctoral degree in a relevant field. Online applications are now being accepted at

The application deadline is December 1, 2014.

This is an excellent opportunity for promising young scholars. More information can be found at: If you have any questions, please contact:
