Delta Eta

Established in 2016, Delta Eta is VCU’s chapter of Delta Omega, Honorary Society in Public Health. Membership in the Delta Omega honorary society represents excellence in the study and practice of public health and a commitment to the field. Selected students are in the top 10% of each graduating class academically; each year, we also induct certain outstanding alumni and VCU faculty, and honor community members who contribute to the practice of public health.
