ImpactHack2020:   Exploring American Diplomacy

The National Museum of American Diplomacy is hosting its second hackathon, this time virtually! Starting July 15, participants will compete using their tech skills and creativity to enhance the general public’s understanding of diplomacy and its related skills.

Over 100 students and recent grads participated in ImpactHack2018. One of the projects resulted in a full-size interactive at the museum. The projects of ImpactHack2020 will also serve as prototypes to freely-accessed interactives in the new museum.

Michigan State University Master of Public Health Program Virtual Information Webinars @ Online

The Master of Public Health program (MPH) is a 43 credit, fully online, professional degree program.  The MPH program is designed to ensure that our students are engaged in coursework and practical training to obtain the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to perform successfully, as public health professionals in the United States and internationally.

What we see in the news today is a representation of public health in action. Trained public health professionals including epidemiologists, emergency managers, community health workers, biostatisticians, physicians, nutritionists and more are working together to keep our communities safe and provide the most up to date and accurate information.

With over 600 graduates, the MPH program at MSU has trained public health professionals and some current public health students working on the front lines as our country works through the global pandemic.

Join us for a virtual information webinar. You’ll hear directly from our admissions counselor and academic advisors regarding general program information, our application process and student guidance throughout the program.

Learn more about the MPH program at MSU and explore how you too can become a part of public health in action!
