Delta Omega National Public Health Honor Society
In December 2007, the Public Health Student Organization (PHSO) worked diligently and successfully enrolled the program into Delta Omega, America’s most prestigious public health honor society. Beta Rho, the UConn Chapter of Delta Omega, continues to expand and includes more than 90 members. The national society comprises over 70 chapters throughout the world and has more than 14,000 members from top echelons of graduate schools and programs of public health, as well as the public health community. The society still honors the ideals that initially formed its foundation, even as the meaning and scope of public health has broadened tremendously. Membership in Delta Omega reflects the dedication of an individual to increasing the quality of the field, as well as to the protection and advancement of the health of all people.
