These 2015 Delta Omega Honorary Society inductees are enrolled in the Master of Public Health program within the College of Graduate and Professional Studies.
Each year, the Gamma Chi chapter of Delta Omega elects new student members based on high academic performance and demonstration of public health leadership. Election of membership in Delta Omega is intended to not only recognize merit, but also to encourage and further excellence in and devotion to public health work.

On an annual basis, a select number of top-performing Master of Public Health (MPH) students are granted membership into the Delta Omega Honorary Society. Members enjoy a variety of benefits, including access to a number of leadership development and publication opportunities, professional networking events, and discounted resources.
