Heading to Atlanta for APHA 2017? Come hear about our CDC-funded projects to build a culture of health in Merced County.
Congratulations to doctoral candidate Steven Ramondt for a new publication representing many, many hours of reading and thinking about how media exposure might be related to fatalism. Read the results yourself here or contact me for the full text. And don't forget to cite:
Ramondt S, Ramírez AS. Fatalism and exposure to health information from the media: examining the evidence for causal influence. Ann Int Commun Assoc. 2017;:1–23. doi:10.1080/23808985.2017.1387502
The Communication, Culture, and Health research team has been awarded two Student Success Internship positions for the 2017-18 school year.
If you are a second- or third-year student who is highly motivated, self-directed, and interested in getting hands-on experience with public health research, please consider applying. In addition to earning $15 per hour, Student Success Interns have opportunities for professional and leadership development outside of the research lab. Interns work directly with faculty and graduate students.
One internship will focus on Science Communication research. The selected student will learn about effective communication of science and will develop the framework for a local news information service to improve science and health news in the Central Valley.
The other internship will focus on Latino Health research. The selected student - bilingual in English and Spanish required - will work on developing and testing messages pertaining to healthy diets for Mexican-American populations.
