Epidemiology student group brings faculty and students together through social media

November 26, 2018

Epidemiology students now have a place online to build connections, network with peers and showcase their work thanks to the new social media group titled ‘OUT-BREAKERS, UMass Epidemiology Student Group’ on Facebook.

Founded by Epidemiology graduate student Rajshree Pandey with support from the Epidemiology program, the group aims to bring UMass Amherst students and faculty together to share experiences and socialize. It’s intended to attract those who are interested in, studying or working in the field of public health, specifically in epidemiology.

“We hope to build a community,” says Pandey, “and provide a platform for disseminating information, sharing resources and networking.”

The group invites anyone interested to like and follow its Facebook page.
