Regional Activities

The Harvard School of Public Health Office of Alumni Affairs is working to help alumni across the globe connect with fellow classmates by helping to organize a variety of regional activities in cities around the globe. These activities fall into several categories.

Educational & Networking Events


Educational & Networking Events are free or low-cost opportunities for alumni to learn about cutting edge public health research. These events are organized by the Office for Alumni Affairs - often in conjunction with the local Harvard Club - to coincide with the travel schedules of HSPH Faculty or Dean Julio Frenk . If you have a suggestion for an event with an HSPH professor or public health topic you would like to see discussed in your area, please contact Jim Smith in the Alumni Office.

Informal Alumni Meet-Ups


Informal Alumni Meet-Ups are just that - informal get togethers that alumni organize themselves. You pick the place, time and date (often a pub, restaurant or coffee shop) and the alumni office can help get the word out to fellow HSPH alumni who live or work in your area. Some meet-ups are organized in conjunction with a conference or simply a small group of alumni who live and work locally. If you would like to learn more about how to organize a successful Alumni Meet-Up where you are, contact Jim Smith in the Alumni Office.

HSPH Alumni Chapters

We are excited to have established a number of local HSPH Alumni Chapters in cities where we have a large concentration of HSPH alumni or just an enthusiastic group of leaders. These organizations are volunteer led and host several events throughout the year, from networking opportunities to social and educational events to develop and strengthen the HSPH alumni network. If you are interested in learning more about starting an HSPH Chapter in your area, you can contact David Rogers.
