College of Public Health to hold Community Open House April 20

The UGA College of Public Health will host its first Community Open House April 20 from 3-6 p.m. at the Health Sciences Campus. Free and open to the public, the open house will showcase the college’s ongoing transition to the Health Sciences Campus.

The college is commemorating its 10th anniversary this year, and the Community Open House will kick off a yearlong observance of the college’s achievements over the past decade, including accreditation and the move to serve as the primary tenant of the Health Sciences Campus.

The Community Open House, which will highlight the college’s role in the community, will include health screenings, children’s activities and various demonstrations by community organizations. In addition, guided tours will allow visitors to see the work done by the Office of University Architects to renovate and revitalize the campus. Guests also will be able to interact with the college’s students and faculty as they share the work they’re doing on campus.

The open house will conclude with an installment of “Community Conversations” presented by Athens Regional Health System. Panelists taking part in the 30-minute discussion will explore the question “What is Public Health?”
