    Volunteer Opportunity: PVD Vaccine Awareness Canvassing

    West Elmwood Housing

    Despite recent changes to masking guidelines and strong vaccination rates at the State level, the SARS-CoV-2 virus continues to spread in Providence and cause new cases of COVID-19. We will be heading into the City’s ‘hot zones’ for COVID-19 transmission as well as our ‘cold zones’ for vaccination rates to bring materials and information to help protect residents.

    In some of these areas, less than 40% of adults have received their 1st dose of a COVID-19 vaccine which means that the virus can continue to spread easily. This is especially the case in the City’s high density communities (HDCs) where the tightly-packed urban layout makes transmission easier. It is our goal to meet people where they are to give information on the vaccines available and to help make vaccine appointments for those interested.

    Please join us to help make getting vaccinated an easier choice for our hard-working families and to ensure the good health of our vibrant Capital City.

  • The Morehouse College Public Health Graduate School Recruitment Fair  presents an opportunity to engage in dialogue about career options and higher education opportunities.  In the past, this has resulted in greater numbers of minority students gaining entrance into schools of public health~

    Morehouse College Public Health Sciences Institute prepares underrepresented minority students for entry into graduate schools of public health through two cooperative agreements with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
    Through this Relationship, Morehouse College manages two summer internships; Project IMHOTEP and the Morehouse College Public Health Leader Fellowship Program (PHLFP). 

    Project IMHOTEP is designed to increase the knowledge and skills of underserved-underrepresented minority students interested in careers and graduate schools of public health with a focus on epidemiology, biostatistics, and occupational safety and health.

    Morehouse College Public Health Leader Fellowship Program (PHLFP) is an educational training program in public health which focuses on students who are interested in HIV, viral hepatitis, STD, and tuberculosis as a career focus. Both programs aim to train culturally sensitive undergraduate and recent graduate underrepresented minority students by providing comprehensive training in public health.
