The Gaining Equity in Training for Public Health Informatics and Technology (GET PHIT) Consortium would like to formally invite you to a Summer Bootcamp hosted at Huston–Tillotson University.
The in-person summer bootcamp is for undergraduates who may be interested in public health informatics. They will be offered in different locations each summer, open to all currently enrolled undergraduate students. The first week of the 2-week experience will be comprised of a combination of informational lectures and hands-on, practice exercises. The students will spend the second week working on research projects. They will be divided into small groups with faculty mentors. Project ideas may come from the faculty or the students.
Examples of potential projects include:
- Building a decision-making dashboard for a rural public health department

- Developing an algorithm to identify specific risk factors
The Bootcamp Curriculum will include:
