Support Public Health Without Borders
Public Health Without Borders (PHWB) is a student-run organization at the University of Maryland that aims to improve health outcomes through sustainable health education initiatives. PHWB is committed to promoting public health activities globally, including on and around the University of Maryland campus. Since 2014, PHWB has conducted international health projects in Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Peru, and India. These projects have focused on first aid, nutrition, prevention of infectious diseases, oral hygiene, hand washing, and oral rehydration therapy for diarrheal diseases. PHWB has also helped the local community by partnering with Prince George’s County schools and College Park wellness programs. Each workshop places an emphasis on educating the partner community on how to improve their health using the resources available in their region and culture.
PHWB focuses on creating lasting relationships with the partnering communities through adopting sustainable interventions and culturally competent practices. In doing so, PHWB enables students of all backgrounds to interact with one another under the broader context of public health. In addition, PHWB membership includes more than 150 undergraduate students from across majors and colleges, graduate students, and faculty. This diverse collaboration provides individuals of different ages and academic levels the opportunity to interact with one another outside of the classroom setting. PHWB exemplifies the University’s commitment to service as well as its commitment to providing living and learning opportunities to students.
