The Center is very proud of our graduating seniors who participated as Peer Health Partners, or PHPs, during their undergraduate years at Emory: Alex Boettcher, Michelle Cholko, Sheri Feigenbaum, Jaclyn Gaylis, Ed Kovel, Samantha Levin, Jelecia Miller, Molly Narrod, Ashley Porch, Erin Swearing, and Keitra Thompson.
These students embody the vision of the Center and dedicated countless hours of their time to help spread knowledge regarding the science of human health to freshman enrolled in Health 100 courses.
The Center for the Study of Human Health is proud to announce that the following seniors graduated today with a minor in Predictive Health: Leah Abrams, Raven Bowie, Bianca Eugene, Sheri Feigenbaum, Jackie Gaylis, Aerhealle Hampton, Jelecia Miller, Ashley Porch, Shriya Reddy, Tyler Stratton, and Ann Wobler.
These students have a number of exciting career opportunities available to them. Their destinations in the coming months include medical school, public health school, internships with city- and county-level organizations, and nutrition-related programming for hospitals and non-profit organizations, among other opportunities. Watch for forthcoming posts highlighting these individual student achievements. Photo courtesy of Instagram #Emory2013
Keep Calm and Breathe On
Finals week is challenging for everyone, and this week students affiliated with the Center for the Study of Human Health provided an opportunity for their peers to decompress through yoga, meditation, and art therapy. The promotional video (follow the link above) was created by Taylor Werkema as part of his final project for a class on Empowerment, Life Balance, and Stress Relief offered through the Center. More than 30 students turned up for the event, and many others joined in as word spread across the library!
The final course requirement for Predictive Health Minors is called “Health 410: Predictive Health Challenge.” This year’s inaugural senior class took on as their final challenge the creation of an app to improve health. The class has been working in small groups of 2-4 students to produce an app targeting a specific health challenge that they have identified. On Friday, May 3rd at 8:30 am in White Hall Room 207, students will describe the health challenge that they are targeting and then publicly demonstrate how their app works. We encourage Emory students and community members to attend these presentations.
