Newswise — The Rutgers School of Public Health invites you to join its inaugural Pride Week events happening between June 9–11, 2021.

Two virtual events will be available throughout the week:

  • Our final event is Career Pathways with Pride on Friday, June 11, 2021, at noon.

The Rutgers School of Public Health was the first accredited school of public health to offer an entire Master of Public Health degree concentrating on LGBTQ health. The program prepares students to conduct research and work in public health programs dedicated to improving the health of LGBTQ+ individuals and communities.

“This LGBTQ Health concentration addresses the growing need for health and health-related practitioners who are trained in addressing the unique and often challenging health needs of LGBTQ individuals across a wide range of professional settings,” says Henry F. Raymond, associate professor, and director of the LGBTQ Health concentration at the Rutgers School of Public Health.
