Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health - Epsilon Kappa Chapter Information
About Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health
The Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health was founded in 1924 at Johns Hopkins Univer5sity within the School of Hygiene and Public Health (nowknown as Bloomberg School of Public Health) by two graduate students, Dr. Edgar Erskine Hume and Dr. Claude W. Mitchell.
At the time, public health as a profession was still in its infancy and, prior to the establishment of university-based education in public health, entrance into the field had been largely through practical experience and political favor. To promote the graduate student of the field, Dr. Hume and Dr. Mitchell organized this honorary society in order to recognize outstanding achievement in the new field.
