Help Us Meet Our Fundraising Deadline!
Georgia State University’s fundraising year ends June 30th, so please visit our giving page now to make a one-time gift to the School of Public Health and help us finish this year with our strongest alumni support to-date. You can also start a monthly gift for as little as $5 or $10 per month that will not only count for this year, but will give us a head start when the new year begins July 1st. With support from our alumni, the School is expanding opportunities for alumni engagement with a slate of events and activities throughout the year. Your gift to the School of Public Health also helps us recruit top-notch faculty and provide enrichment opportunities for current students. Thank you for your commitment to our continued growth with your support!
Working At CDC? Join Our New
Panthers @ Work Group
On April 14, the Georgia State University Alumni Association hosted an evening reception at the David J. Sencer CDC Museum featuring President Mark Becker, along with Dean Michael Eriksen and Alumni Board member and CDC employee Susan Laird to officially kick off the new CDC Panthers @ Work group. Panthers @ Work is a program to champion Panther pride and connect Georgia State alumni in the workplace. Any Georgia State alum working with CDC in any professional capacity is eligible to join this new professional network. Please let us know if you’d like to be involved in participating in this great new program. You can choose to be involved in the formation and direction of the group, or just let us know you’d like to be included once they begin planning activities. If you’d like more information on how to participate, please contact Aimee Ahmed, director of development in the School of Public Health at email@example.com
Help Our Current Students With Their Practicum
As our alumni know, all students in the School of Public Health are required to complete a practicum experience as part of their academic degree requirements. The main objective is to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate competencies from their concentration coursework to community-based research and service in a practice setting. As the School continues to grow, we have an ever-increasing need for practicum sites for our students, especially with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). Helping connect our students to practicums is one of the most impactful ways our alumni can help the School of Public Health. If you or your organization have a project or program you think could serve as a practicum, contact Jessica Pratt at firstname.lastname@example.org with project details and preferred qualifications and skills. Forms with additional practicum information can be found online at http://publichealth.gsu.edu/students/practicum/practicum-forms/
Share Your Career Experiences,
Help Current Students
We are looking for alumni to share their career experiences by speaking to students on a variety of topics each semester. Hearing from alumni about their career paths is an incredibly valuable experience for current students. Please contact Jessica Pratt at email@example.com if you are interested in serving on a panel, leading a discussion, or participating in a student-alumni networking opportunity.
