USCB Public Health Students Conduct Community-based Research

The University of South Carolina Beaufort's public health students engage in undergraduate community-based research, guided by experienced faculty mentors. This research focuses on addressing public health challenges in the local community, such as access to healthcare, chronic disease prevention, and health equity.

By conducting research in partnership with community organizations and residents, students gain practical experience and contribute to improving the health and wellbeing of their community. Through this hands-on learning approach, USCB's public health program prepares students for successful careers in the field of public health.

USCB Public Health students make posters to present their research projects at the university's annual Student Research and Scholarship Day.

“Since high school, I knew I wanted to work in healthcare. USCB’s Public Health program challenged me and helped me. I had the opportunity to present on the benefits of young adults knowing and understanding their pulse and heart rhythm at the 29th Annual Art and Science Conference of Public Health. My favorite public health class was Epidemiology.”
