Delta Omega Society

Delta Omega is a national honor society that aims to encourage excellence in research, scholarship and practice among students taking graduate study in public health and to recognize attainment in the field of public health.

Delta Omega was founded in 1924 at the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health (now the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health) to promote excellence and to recognize accomplishment in scholarship and research. Since the establishment of the Alpha Chapter at Johns Hopkins, the Society has expanded nationally. For more information about the society, visit the Alpha Chapter webpage.

This fellowship limits its membership to public health faculty, students, and alumni. Each candidate must also meet membership criteria as set forth in the constitution and bylaws. The Society accepts only students meeting high academic standards. All candidates must also demonstrate a potential for making significant contributions to the field of public health.
