The Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health was founded to recognize outstanding achievement in public health. Delta Omega chapters are comprised of CEPH-accredited schools and programs. Virginia Tech's chapter of Delta Omega, Delta Mu, was established in 2017. Each spring, a select number of Virginia Tech graduates, alumni, and faculty are inducted into Delta Mu. Membership in Delta Omega honors the dedication of individuals to high quality public health scholarship, as well as to the protection and advancement of the health of all people. National guidelines for yearly inductions can be found here.
