As a graduate student association, we provide opportunities for doctoral (PhD), Master of Science (MSc), and professional program (MPH, MHI, MHE) students in the School of Public Health Sciences to connect.

Over the course of the year, we host virtual and on and off campus events. We look forward to working with you to develop a vibrant and active graduate student community.

We acknowledge that we work on the traditional territory of ‎ the Attawandaron (Neutral), Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes ten kilometers on each side of the Grand River. We acknowledge that we work on these territories as beneficiaries of settler colonialism. We also acknowledge that members of our UWaterloo community live on Indigenous territories around the world.

This statement is only a small step in the process of reconciliation. Decolonization requires systemic change. The SPHS GSA is committed to this effort.

Art in Health

Join us at "Art in Health" to explore different artistic techniques in a relaxed and supportive environment. This event will provide students with an opportunity to learn how to sketch using different art techniques, such as “contouring”, which involves sketching the outline of an object. The goal is to facilitate a creative process that allows students to self-explore and de-stress while learning a new art technique.
