Student Groups

Epidemic Proportions

Epidemic Proportions is a student-published journal designed to highlight JHU research and field work in public health. Combining research and scholarship, the journal seeks to capture the breadth and depth of the JHU undergraduate public health experience. It provides students with an outlet to publish their work while learning how to edit, design, and create a compelling publication. Our audience includes students, professors, and faculty from not only Homewood campus, but also the Bloomberg School of Public Health and other Hopkins-affiliated institutions.

Public Health Student Forum

Public Health Student Forum (PHSF) strives to promote the advocacy of statewide public health issues and policies in its communities, as well as on the Johns Hopkins University campus. PHSF’s activities include community service, sponsored public health speakers, fundraising, and hosting public health awareness events. The group also hosts an annual undergraduate conference in public health.


Mission: Glohea at JHU’s mission is to increase youth involvement in global health and to develop the next generation of leaders in global health and medicine. Glohea at JHU organizes The Global Health Leaders Conference at JHU that features world leaders in global health, public health, and medicine, brings together exceptional students from across the US and abroad, and creates a platform for both students and global health leaders to share their work and ideas. Additionally, Glohea at JHU publishes articles on global health issues written by students in grades 9-12 through their Global Health Student Article Program.
