In a year that can be labelled as “the year of public health", the Faculty of Health Sciences at the American University of Beirut is proud to announce that the Gamma Delta Chapter for Public Health at the American University of Beirut was selected for “the Chapter of the year" award, granted by Delta Omega Honorary Society.
In 2020, AUB Chaoter was at the heart of all public health activities initiated by FHS and AUB, while taking th elead in many other endeavors aiming to raise awareness about COVID19 through community engagement and hosting a series of online talks featuring several public health experts, and involving students, FHS alumni, as well as the members of the Chapter.
This sensational achievement came one year after AUB Gamma Delta Chapter for Public Health claimed “The New Chapter of the year" award in 2019.
Every year, the National Office and Executive Committee recognizes Delta Omega chapters for their efforts in promoting excellence in the field. The chapter awards are announced and presented during the Annual Meeting so that the winning chapters may give a short presentation on their outreach and lessons learned. These presentations are meant to inspire and aid fellow chapters in their engagement efforts and foster idea-sharing among chapters.
