Mariam Shakeel of Peachtree City has been inducted into the Gamma Upsilon chapter of the Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health.


Shakeel is a Georgia State University master of public health student. Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health was founded in 1924 to promote the graduate study of public health, which at the time was a new field.


Delta Omega now has more than 84 chapters worldwide and more than 15,000 members from the top echelons of graduate schools and programs of public health, as well as the public health community. Georgia State's chapter Gamma Upsilon was founded in 2014 to recognize students and public health professionals who are dedicated to advancing the wellbeing of all people.
