Public Health Stories: Inspiring STEM Learning

Public health is part of students’ daily lives, from bullying to vaccination to climate change. By focusing on real-world public health challenges, students can foster connections across STEM disciplines, practice skills like critical thinking and discover how disease and social influences on health are interconnected. Join the discussion on how inclusive lessons, videos, and competitions can encourage educational excellence, move us toward health equity, and expand the STEM talent base.
