Maternal & Child Health Student Organization


The Maternal and Child Health Student Organization (MCHSO) serves as a forum for all students interested in maternal and child health (MCH) issues. The purpose and goals of this organization is to:

  1. Educate and increase awareness of MCH issues and projects within the United States and abroad.
  2. Connect students with service and learning opportunities in MCH and public health.
  3. Create opportunities for mentorship and learning among USF alumni and students. 
  4. Provide opportunities for interaction and community engagement among students interested in MCH, as well as faculty and staff.

MCHSO was created during Fall 2009 by a small group of students who volunteered to form a Steering Committee, under the guidance of the organization's faculty advisor Dr. Russell Kirby. Today, MCHSO is open to all students either full-time or part-time, pursuing undergraduate, graduate, non-degree, or professional studies from any college at the University of South Florida.
