About the Public Health Society

The purpose of the Public Health Society is to educate and inform the MUSC and the Charleston community about the field of public health, host forums, public health fairs, and provide community service. Additionally, the members of the Public Health Society will serve as liaisons to the American Public Health Association and South Carolina Public Health Association, as well as student ambassadors for future public health students.


Lowcountry Period Project

MUSC MPH students pack feminine hygiene packs for homeless shelters.

The Department of Public Health Sciences hosts an annual drive to collect feminine hygiene products for the Lowcountry Period Project. This is a nonprofit in our area that provides feminine products to women and girls in need. Products are assembled into packs with various items and distributed in schools, shelters, and blessing boxes. Since 2020, DPHS has collected and donated supplies for over 1,000 packs that were distributed throughout the Charleston area.
