The Association of Public Health Infectious Diseases Students at Berkeley (APHIDS) is a graduate student group serving the School of Public Health (SPH) graduate students. Its goals include creating a strong sense of community, fostering communication both among Infectious Diseases students and between other SPH concentrations, and providing a welcoming and warm environment for new and prospective students. It is also dedicated to working within both the UC Berkeley student population and the city of Berkeley to reduce disease burden among at-risk populations. Currently, APHIDS is working with the Suitcase Clinic to provide Berkeley's homeless population with flu vaccinations and to expand its disease surveillance services.
