The Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health was founded in 1924 at Johns Hopkins University. At the time, public health as a profession was still in its infancy and, prior to the establishment of university-based education in public health, entrance into the field had been largely through practical experience and political favor. To promote the graduate study of the field, this honorary society was organized in order to recognize outstanding achievement in the new field.
