Executive Public Health Administration & Policy Cohort 2 students gathered on campus Jan. 26-27 to present their master’s projects, round out their educations, and celebrate their pending completion of the program.
Students presented a variety of projects, from a hyperlocal prediction model of heat emergencies due to climate change, to a national survey of PHAB-accredited health departments, to a business plan for an in-home respiratory therapy services company based in Harare, Zimbabwe.
Students had workshops on how to conduct a focus group, with Richard Krueger and Mary Anne Casey; how to make a survey, with Todd Rockwood; and how to be an ally in the fight against bias, by Wendy Weimerskirch Plager from the University’s Office for Equity and Diversity.
On Friday afternoon, we celebrated the students’ accomplishments with a ceremony and reception at the Campus Club. SPH Dean John Finnegan and HPM Division Chair Tim Beebe spoke, commending the students on their efforts and their engagement in making the world a better place.
