CPH Research Opportunity

Hello! My name is Dr. Janani Thapa. I am a Professor and Researcher at the Department of Health Policy and Management/College of Public Health at the University of Georgia. My team is conducting a research study on mental health among college students. We invite you to participate in this study to help us understand mental health issues facing college students and evaluate an intervention to provide mental health support.

This research study has two phases. Phase 1 is a survey that takes 10 minutes to complete. Phase 2 is an intervention to provide mental health support. The intervention lasts 4 weeks and involves sharing and engaging with information about mental health online. You may choose to participate in only Phase 1 of the study or both Phase 1 and 2.

We will randomly select 15 participants from Phase 1 to receive $100 gift cards. Participation is not required to enter the drawing. All Phase 2 participants will receive a $20 gift card for their participation. If you are interested in participating in the study, please click the link below to learn more and access the Phase 1 survey:


Your participation in this research is entirely voluntary. There are no consequences of any kind for choosing not to participate. Thank you for helping us learn about these important issues!

    Your School, Your Vision Event

    My name is Oisakhose Aghomo, and I am working on a project called the Secret Curriculum Project; it's an institutional "recalibration" project with an aim to take steps to solve the issues with access, inclusivity, and equity at the University of Georgia, sponsored by the Office of Sustainability.

    On April 14th, 2021 at 6 pm, we will be hosting our “Your School, Your Vision Event”. This event will feature 4 alumni panelists (open to other alumni to attend as well), and it will be a panel discussion between UGA alumni and current UGA students about what we envision for the future of the university and upcoming students. We’ll be discussing what we would like to see from UGA in the next 10 years, opportunities we’d like for future students to have, and the kind of legacy we would like to leave in Athens.

    Deadline Extended: Strategic Health & Risk Communication Professional Certficate

    UGA HPRB has partnered with Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication to develop a Strategic Health and Risk Communication Professional Certificate. This 18-credit certificate will be co-administered by the Advertising and Public Relations Department in Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Department of Health Promotion and Behavior in the College of Public Health. The purpose of creating the program is to provide students with knowledge, skills, and experience related to applying strategic communication principles to addressing public health problems. The Covid-19 pandemic has illustrated the importance of effectively communicating scientific data and information to the public and the problems that arise when information is misrepresented. With an aging population and healthcare playing an integral role in our society, there really is a strong demand for training and experience on communication in the healthcare area. The availability of this certificate will help to prepare students to meet the needs of society at large and use their health promotion and/or communication skills in an applied manner. We expect students to come out of the program ready to illustrate the process of developing empirically-informed health communication campaigns for public health purposes. In addition, students will have the opportunity to practice the application of strategic public health communication through project-based and experiential learning opportunities.

    I am excited about this collaboration and applications for the certificate open today. Only a small cohort (~15 HPRB students) will be accepted into the certificate program for Fall 2021. Applications are due by April 15th at 11:59pm.
