Who we are:

The Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH) at San Diego State University (SDSU) was founded in 1980 as part of the university’s new focus on health and human services. One of four nationally accredited schools of public health in California and located in one of the most vibrant and culturally diverse areas in the country, the GSPH provides many opportunities for education, research, and community involvement to advance the state of knowledge in different health disciplines and to improve the population’s health.

What we do:

The GSPH provides both undergraduate and graduate education in population-based health disciplines to prepare students for professional health and public health careers, and to enhance the knowledge and abilities of current health professionals. Opportunities for education extend beyond the formal classroom through interactions with faculty on research projects and opportunities to become actively engaged in local and regional community service activities.

Why we need your help:

Viajes Interinstitucional de Integración Docente, Asistencial y de Investigación (VIIDAI) is a unique, international public health field experience for students and faculty from San Diego State University, Universidad Autónoma de Baja California, and the University of California San Diego.

The mission of the program is to facilitate collaborative projects that integrate the faculty and students from the three participating universities in an effort to both promote health and to provide services to underserved populations while increasing cultural awareness.

Your support of this project will help deserving SDSU students experience these transformational opportunities in the field of public health.
