About the BBH APG

The purpose of the Biobehavioral Health Affiliate Program Group (BBH APG) is to unite alumni of the Department of Biobehavioral Health; to provide a means whereby alumni may network to achieve closer alliance among alumni, faculty and students; and to enhance the stature and effectiveness of the department.

We fulfill this mission through activities in four main areas:


We help students discover careers they can pursue with a degree in Biobehavioral Health by sponsoring career panels, providing career information, and supporting the college wide mentoring program.


We nominate BBH alumni, students, faculty, and staff for the College of Health and Human Development awards, including the Alumni Recognition Award, Alumni Service Award, and the Emerging Professionals Awards. These awards help to highlight the accomplishments of our outstanding BBH alumni, faculty, staff, and students. 


We provide avenues for BBH alumni to connect or reconnect with each other, faculty, and current students. This is done through BBH Affiliate Program Group meetings, speed networking events, Alumni in the Classroom events, etc. 


We sponsor social activities on and off campus to promote a sense of community among BBH alumni and students including Penn State football watch parties in different locations across the Commonwealth, tailgates at Beaver Stadium, during the football season, participating in golf tournaments, hiking, and other outdoor activities in the summer.
