UNT Health Science Center School of Public Health (SPH) students, faculty and staff recently participated in a Habitat for Humanity effort to help build homes for two Fort Worth families.

The effort was coordinated by the UNTHSC Public Health Student Association.

“It was great for our school to participate in this important effort,” said Dennis Thombs, PhD, SPH Interim Dean.

“Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity has been committed to working hand-in-hand with the families they serve to build quality, affordable homes using donations of funds, materials and volunteer support,” he said. “We are committed to helping find solutions for a healthier community, and Habitat’s mission matches well with ours.”
