It’s been a good week despite unrelenting 90+ degree days and no rain. Monday, I had the pleasure of welcoming our new Summer Public Health Fellows. It is a great group of students who have come from all over the U.S., especially from this area. They’re going to get an intensive intro to public health over the next eight weeks, along with a heavy dose of skill building and fun. Thanks for the efforts of Felicia Mebane, PhD, Assistant Dean for Students, Sherry Rhodes, Nicole Chenault and many others around the School.
Dr. Smedley and others said we should focus on prevention, especially the conditions in which people live, work, play and study. See diversitydata.org for great information.
I won’t try to recap all three excellent talks. See them online by archived webcast! It’s worth your time. Happy day! Barbara
