This year will mark the fourth annual Uganda Public Health Immersion program. We invite all USC students to take part in this summer’s trip, coordinated by the USC Institute for Global Health and soccer foundation Ray United FC. As a volunteer you will work with Ugandan university students and organizations to plan public health education sessions and carry out research. Then, you’ll travel to villages to lead discussions, games and workshops with schoolchildren attending a weeklong soccer camp. After, you may choose to spend an optional week touring schools, government centers and health clinics. Master of Public Health students may be able to course credit and fulfill practicum requirements.

Learn more about the trip and submit your interest form here. RSVP for the information session below.
