Advocation - Change it Up! is a podcast series from the University of South Florida's College of Public Health Activist Lab covering important public health topics and how we can do our part in advocating for change. Our host, Dr. Karen Liller, professor at the College of Public Health and Director of the Activist Lab, is joined in each episode by a student co-host and esteemed guests who share their knowledge and experience on air.
The Activist Lab's Adopt a School Program invites students from Liberty Middle School and Freedom High School to participate in lab meetings with Dr. Liller and her student team to introduce and foster interest and engagement in topics they would like to become involved with. Students hone writing and speech skills while learning how to implement change at all levels.
Find Your Voice Seminars create a space for continued advocacy plans, advice for students, and the latest on public health initiatives. Emma González and David Hogg recently joined the Activist Lab in engaging students and community members on Gun Violence Prevention.
