Oregon MPH Student Listserv

As a new student you will automatically be subscribed to the Oregon MPH listserv. Through this program listserv, new and returning students will find the most current information about OMPH Program events and news, job-related opportunities, internships, new class offerings, health-related seminars, upcoming events, fellowships, and other items of interest. 

The listserv is managed by the Oregon MPH Program Office and it is used by the office to send important announcements to the MPH student body. Messages are consolidated in a “Digest” which is sent out weekly, and archived here.  

To change your subscriptions, opt out, or subscribe manually to the Oregon MPH listserv, click here.

Department Student Listservs

The individual departments each have their own student listservs for your track. Please contact your department for further information on subscribing.
