Officials at Oregon State University’s College of Public Health and Human Sciences believe that the stars are lining up just about perfectly for the college’s increased focus on wellness and preventive care.
Public Health is a rapidly growing field with promising career opportunities. Investing in a degree from OSU is a great choice because of the well-rounded and all-inclusive degrees we offer.
OSU’s outreach efforts,including the college’s Extension 4-H and Family and Community Development programs, earn national distinction.
The 4-H Urban-Rural Exchange allows host families from Grant, Klamath, and Wallowa counties to open their homes to city kids and Multnomah County families to rural students.
“This new project will enable us to create an infrastructure for parenting education in Oregon that builds on best practices across the state and answers specific local needs,” says Denise Rennekamp.
“I can’t express how cool it is, especially in these economic times, to have students initiate this, and to understand, “Let’s be part of the solution,” Karen says. “It’s a testament to the kind of kids who work with KidSpirit.”
