In this section public health-students and young professionals share their work on relevant public health issues. The members of the department with different professional background and interest study on different public health locations nationwide. As an interdisciplinary approach, students from all health-related subjects are welcome to share their views on public health-related topics. 

The section is organized from students for students and young professionals. Therefore, the section aims to represents students’ interests. Different student-led formats such as a poster-presentation at the congress „Armut und Gesundheit“ (Poverty and Health; a large German public health-congress) enables students to present their own research.
