Student involvement

Students are welcome and encouraged to attend our collaborative events such as health equity panels and volunteer events. In the past, students have served as graduate interns for the network to manage and lead the different nodes. HPEN engages students at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels in the equity-focused curriculum through their coursework, case studies, and experiential learning opportunities.
