Under the guidance of mentors, participants experience first-hand how to apply public health theory and knowledge in practical settings. ASPPH fellows train in areas such as monitoring and surveillance, program management, research, evaluation, informatics, statistics, epidemiology, environmental health, and policy while making meaningful contributions to important public health programs.
