Dear Friends and Colleagues –
We are gratified by the enthusiasm from faculty, students, staff, and colleagues that has greeted the Center for Public Health Advocacy over the past year. We would not be where we are without you.
As we move into our second year, the Center will play a critical role in advancing evidence-driven advocacy leadership, both within the School and beyond. We will expand access to advocacy resources, convene public health leaders and advocates, and continue to support scholarship in this important area. We will also continue to identify and impart the advocacy best practices needed to inform decision-makers and shift public policy. As we wrap up our first year as a Center we reflect on our collective achievements, highlighted below.
The Center’s milestones would not have been possible without Dr. David Jernigan’s extraordinary contributions to the creation of the Center. David will move on to new challenges in the coming months and his leadership will be missed.
We look forward to another year of growth, continued collaboration, and new achievements.
Jose “Oying” Rimon and Beth Fredrick
