Delta Omega (ΔΩ) is the honorary society for studies in public health. The society was founded in 1924 by graduate students Dr. Edgar Erskine Hume and Dr. Claude W. Mitchell at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. Currently, there are over 100 chapters with over 20,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. The society's mission is to promote excellence in contributing to the field of public health and advancing the health of people in every aspect, both in the United States and internationally.
Delta Omega values the advancement of public health education, practice and research and has therefore taken on an initiative to preserve Public Health Classics. For the past decade, the society has sought to preserve and promote public health history by identifying and reprinting classic works in public health. Classics may be books, scientific journal articles, technical reports, legislation or other written publications or multi-media productions. The classics are selected for their historical value and significant contribution to the profession and science of public health. These documents are usually out of print or not widely available in libraries. Delta Omega places the classics on its Web site to make them freely available to all members.
Membership in Delta Omega reflects the dedication of an individual to quality in the field of public health and to protection and advancement of the health of all people. Election to the society is based on outstanding performance – scholarship in students, teaching and research in faculty members, and community service in alumni. Election to membership in Delta Omega is intended, not only to recognize merit, but also, to encourage further excellence in, and devotion to, public health work.
Each chapter must be associated with a Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH)- accredited school and is limited to inducting no more than 10% of the graduating student body, with each inductee in the top 25% of their class for academic performance. Public health faculty and alumni may also be inducted, but no more than 3% of faculty may be inducted from one program.
In addition to the regularly elected members, chapters and the national executive board invite persons possessing exceptional qualifications, who have attained meritorious national or international distinction in the field to become honorary members of the society. These members include former U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher, former U.S. President Herbert Hoover, Dr. Jonas Salk and former U.S. Congressman John Edward Porter.
