National Public Health Week 2020

April 6-12, 2020

In accordance with Brown University’s COVID-19 policy, and in an abundance of caution, the School of Public Health has canceled or scaled back all National Public Health Week activities considerably. These changes are disappointing, but we must prioritize the health and safety of the entire Brown community. Thank you for your understanding.
