The Community Health Advocates at Tufts (CHAT) is the first official student group in the Tufts Public Health and Professional Degree program. Made up of Tufts graduate students hailing from a variety of backgrounds, CHAT provides a forum for collaboration between future health care leaders from the Tufts community and advocates for causes such as health care policy and disease prevention.
In partnership with the Massachusetts Public Health Association, CHAT recently blogged about their support of the Act FRESH campaign policy agenda.
