Public Health Members, Click here!!!
« on: March 28, 2008, 04:48:09 PM »
I posted this thread to figure out how many public health members (Students or Doctors) in this forum?

Because we all agree that it's very important field but it's missing in this forum, we don't have specific board for it?

Also this includes all members with master of public health (MPH)?
