GPP Staff Advisors and Peer Advisors are available to meet with students both in-person and remotely on Zoom to discuss any questions they have regarding the GPP Minor. The GPP Peer Advisors are undergraduate students who have completed a majority of the requirements for the GPP Minor, including the Practice Experience. They are a great resource to seek information about what the Minor entails, selecting a Practice Experience, course planning, and much more.
We encourage prospective students to meet with an advisor before they apply to declare the Minor. Students declared in the Minor should check in regularly with the Advisors for guidance on ensuring regular progress towards completing the Minor.
We offer drop-in advising and appointments during Fall 2022:
Schedule an appointment: https://calendly.com/gppminor/gpp-minor-advising. You may choose whether your appointment will be in person in Blum Hall or on zoom. We encourage you to meet in person when possible.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Major: Molecular and Cell Biology, Public Health
Practice Experience: This past summer I worked at the Public Health Research Institute of India in Mysore, India. My project was related to the Cervical Cancer Screening Program that the non-profit has established that seeks to screen and treat women in urban and rural areas of Mysore. Specifically I interviewed ASHAs and AWWs who serve as healthcare facilitators in the community and were involved in the Cervical Cancer Screening Program for their opinions and feedback on the success and limitations of the program.
GPP Elective Courses Taken: History 100D (Disease, Health, and Medicine in American History)

About Me: Hi Everyone! My name is Samhita Bhat (she/her) and I grew up in the South Bay Area. When I came to Berkeley, GPP was a minor opportunity that I discovered in my first semester and was something I was so excited to find. I loved the way I was able to combine my interests in medicine and public health and extend that in the GPP classes and PE I was able to do. In my free time, I love to dance, go on hikes, and discover new restaurants and cafés to try out with friends! If you want to talk about GPP and non-profits or looking for a new restaurant to try out, feel free to stop by at my drop-in hours! Look forward to meeting you all 🙂
