The Amherst College Public Health Collaborative (ACPHC) brings together college students, faculty, staff, alumni, community partners and health care providers in order to engage in and promote issues of public health and social justice in the Pioneer Valley. ACPHC seeks to create long-term partnerships between community organizations and students, create a resource network for students interested in the field and highlight the importance of public health in the wider community. By including all relevant stakeholders, ACPHC aims to positively affect the health of the people living in the Pioneer valley, as well as to deepen the relationships between college students and local community by meaningfully engaging students in community health projects and by providing a means for students to apply classroom knowledge to the world they live in.
Current Partnership (Spring 2016)
Starting in Fall of 2015, ACPHC have been working closely with the Amherst community for the new John P. Musante Health Center predicted to open in Spring 2017. We hope to create long-term relationship between the local health center, creating resource and opportunity for students.
