Meet the Students
Meet our 2021-2022 Youth Advisory Board!
It is our pleasure to introduce our Getting to Zero Youth Advisory Board! Over the course of the academic year, the members will participate in various activities including program and materials development, creating social media content for public health channels, community health promotion and outreach, career development, and networking opportunities among public health staff and peers. They will also meet virtually every other month to review materials created, coordinate with public health staff, and engage with guest speakers.
The members are united by their commitment to health promotion and working towards the Getting to Zero Program’s mission of meeting the goals of zero HIV-related stigma, zero new HIV infections, and zero HIV-related deaths. We look forward to collaborating with this group of talented students from diverse backgrounds and identities. See flyer here and below to learn more about our Youth Advisory Board Members!
