First Public Health Emblem Ceremony 2019


On May 29th, the PHP celebrated its first Emblem Ceremony.  During the ceremony, MPH and DrPH alumni received our program’s emblem which symbolizes the completion of their educational requirements.  The emblem of the PHP is the whistle and it was chosen because:

“The sound of the whistle represents alertness.  The health professional is always alert to the need or problem that affects the population”


Meaning of the color

   MPH graduates: The color silver means dynamism and speed.  Health professionals must act before, during and after an event with dynamism and promptness.


      DrPH graduates: The color gold means does not lose its value and has remains over time as a symbol of the Epidemiologist’s actions and interventions endure over time.
