OUR MISSION

After witnessing the spread of misinformation and lack of personal health responsibility in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, high school sophomore Stephanie Wang embarked on an ambitious journey to spread public health literacy far and wide. Our schools do not place an emphasis on public health and epidemiology, which perpetuates a culture vulnerable to misinformation. Through equitable public health education, citizens have the opportunity to truly understand and internalize the detailed mechanisms behind outbreaks and how best to protect their health. Public health education also promotes critical thinking among young people, facilitating an informed, engaged populace. Together, we ought to address this gaping inadequacy in our education systems and take forth a healthier, brighter future.
