Student involvement

Students are invited and encouraged to participate in our collaborative events, including health equity panels and volunteer activities. Historically, students have taken on roles as graduate interns within the network, overseeing and leading various nodes. HPEN actively involves students at the undergraduate, graduate and professional levels in an equity-focused curriculum through their coursework, case studies and experiential learning opportunities.
