You can volunteer to serve on the Alumni Association Advisory Board of the Gillings School of Global Public Health, whose mission is to connect nearly 19,000 Gillings School alumni with each other and to keep them connected with the School and current students.

Upon graduation all public health students are entitled to a free lifetime membership in the School’s Alumni Association. Discover the benefits and services you automatically receive as a graduate of the School.
