This week, 9 students presented posters at The Public Health Student Poster Day hosted by the College of Physicians. The event showcased the work of over 70 students and public health professionals, and we’re proud to announce that our MPH student Jane Seymour’s poster was one of 4 to win an award. Her research was titled “Early-life literacy effects on grand multiparity: A life course assessment.”

In addition, our MPH student Kaitlyn Meirs was named the recipient of the 2014 Public Health Student Recognition Award. The award is given by the The College of Physicians of Philadelphia and attracts dozens of nominees from across the city.

Kati is a full time MPH student and has worked part-time for the Community Outreach and Engagement Core at the Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology (CEET) for the past year. Her public health interests include preventative environmental health focused on maternal and childhood exposures, engaging key stakeholders in environmental health issues and giving the community an active voice in research and policy development.

Congratulations, Jane and Kati!
