Students Assist Local Public Health Departments With COVID-19 Response

Boston University School of Public Health students, along with SPH faculty, staff, and alumni, are part of the newly formed Academic Public Health Volunteer Corps (APHVC) – a COVID-19-focused initiative of the Academic Health Department Consortium.

The group works in partnership with Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH), Massachusetts Health Officers Association, and the Office of Health and Human Services’ COVID-19 Command Center.
