Alex Lemon (BA, 2017) gave a fantastic presentation on the to a standing room only crowd. Erendira Estrada (current Public Health PhD student) delivered a fabulous talk on an ecological approach to communication intervention. In between those talks, I talked about a communication centered approach to engaging communities in research and intervention development.
I also was awarded the 2017 Early Career Award from the Public Health Education and Health Promotion section. The award honors a scholar who has made outstanding contributions to the practice and profession of public health promotion in the first 10 years after the Ph.D. and who shows promise for continued development. I am honored to have been nominated on behalf of the association’s Health Communication Working Group.
