getPHYT is a blog dedicated to inform youth and teens about public health through educational and entertaining articles.
Born in September 2011, getPHYT is the brainchild of two friends catching up online. “We should make something for public health.” “What if we had a blog where we just pulled articles relevant to teens and public health?” “And then discussed what it actually means?” “Yeah!”
By mixing public health with popular culture, getPHYT hopes to show the younger generation that public health is exciting, applicable, and important.
getPHYT’s mission is to raise public health awareness among youth and teens so that in turn, they can raise awareness among their friends and communities.
