Our annual Graduation and End of Year Celebration is a time to celebrate and reflect on the dedication and years of commitment our students have devoted to their studies to become leaders in advancing health equity around the world. 

Families, friends, faculty and staff gathered on June 7 to celebrate 72 students graduating from the UW Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences (DEOHS) across four degree programs.
