Students in the Milken Institute School of Public Health Community Oriented Primary Care (COPC) Master of Public Health program presented their Culminating Experience (CE) on May 7, 2015. The Community-Oriented Primary Care (COPC) program takes present-day public health issues and challenges to the next level and considers the social determinants of health and solutions we can develop with community members, health care providers, and policymakers to address existing health disparities.
The CE provides students the unique opportunity to develop an applied research project in an area of interest to students. This year's topics included eHealth interventions with HIV positive women, assessment of access and barriers to oral health services in Washington, DC, and cultural barriers on patients seeking out cervical cancer screenings, just to name a few.
The COPC program is housed within the Department of Prevention and Community Health at Milken Institute SPH at the George Washington University.
