The Society of Young Black Public Health Professionals, or "The Society," began in 2002 as an association within the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine dedicated to raising awareness for pertinent health issues affecting minorities on both a global and community level.

The Society maintains a professional network for all members, alumni, faculty, and Tulane undergraduate students to foster a positive enduring image of the Tulane community through local outreach projects, fundraising, attendance at national health conferences, volunteerism, and overall helping to better serve the community where we gain our education.

The Society throughout the year works hard to utilize and develop the skills and talents of our members in order to help make a healthier tomorrow for all.

The Society's Academic Advisor is Dr. Michael McAskill in the Global Environmental Health Sciences Department.

The Elected Board for the 2016-2017 year:

The Society encourages all to get involved and attend our meetings throughout the semester or participate at any one of our community and volunteer events.

We work with a number of local and national organizations throughout the year to improve and help make a difference in the community where we continue our education.
