Students United for Policy, Education, and Research (SUPER)

SUPER 2016 Officers

About Us

SUPER, an UMSON student chapter of AcademyHealth, is a student group whose members strive to educate themselves and others on current health care research development and policy practices. SUPER’s parent organization, AcademyHealth, is a premier advocate for health services research and policy advancement. With their guidance, SUPER hosts legislators and other policymakers from the local, state, and national levels; health services researchers; and those working within the health care system in non-governmental roles to share their experiences with the University of Maryland population. SUPER also participates in state health care advocacy events, such as the School of Nursing’s Advocacy Day in Annapolis, allowing students to apply what they have learned about health services policy.
