Welcome to the Summer 2022 Virtual MPH Internship Conference presentation viewing webpage! 

Below you will find presentation recordings of our MPH student internship experiences from those who were slated to present this summer. These wonderful presentations are from students across all of our campuses - Tucson, Phoenix and Online.  We encourage you to view as many presentations as you can across our many MPH concentrations.  The presentations on this page are an excellent representation of the depth and breadth of work that our MPH students do with local, national, and global communities. This page will be available for asynchronous viewing of student presentations until Friday, August 5, 2022.
