Since its founding year, UP CPH has produced a number of professionals in various fields, paving the path for the next generations in the name of public health. In light of this, ALAB – CPH, along with the College of Public Health Student Council (CPHSC) and the UP Hygiene Society (UP HySoc), annually hosts “Trip to the PHuture.” The event consists of a series of talks that aims to provide insights to aspiring public health professionals about the possible career paths one could take. Professors and alumni in various fields of public health, such as but not limited to, environmental and occupational health, epidemiology and biostatistics, health policy and administration, health promotion and education, medical microbiology, nutrition, and parasitology are invited to provide testimonies about their journey as a public health professional. Other than these, guests are also enlightened on the role of public health in various fields, institutions, and situations. The event also brings to light the current challenges and opportunities in the field of public health, which high school students, undergraduates, and graduate students who have shown interest to practice public health profession in the future may take into consideration.
