Staff Highlights: Librarian wins Sewell Award to attend APHA

Please join the WHSC Library in congratulating our colleague Erin Reardon who has been selected as a recipient of the Sewell Stipend Travel Award for librarians to participate in the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association.

The Sewell Stipend covers the cost of membership and early-bird conference registration for a librarian to attend the annual APHA meeting, to be held Nov 12-15, 2023 in Atlanta, GA. Awardees also receive a small stipend to offset travel and other meeting costs. Award recipients are required to identify a professional mentor working in public health, submit a conference summary and participation highlights, and complete volunteer service hours.

Erin joined the Informationist team in March of 2023 from the Health Sciences Library at the University of Minnesota. As a Public Health Informationist, Erin will support instruction and research activities with our Rollins School of Public Health students and faculty, as well as our library Systematic Review Team.
