During the weekend of Friday June 7th through Sunday June 9th, the partners of HAPI were busy spreading the word about Heath Careers! Throughout the entire weekend, a Public Heath Symposium for High School Students was headed by Trinnette Cooper. Twenty students from all over North Carolina stayed on the campus of UNC to learn about Public Health through lectures and activities. The event culminated with the students presenting what they learned from their research on specific topics. The Symposium is an annual event we hope to continue to provide for years to come!
Also on Saturday, June 8th, S.E.P students and Public Health Scholars volunteered at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The participants’ transitioned to their pre-assigned race locations. Truly the event was an eye opening experience for the students and they took away a lot with regard to learning about Breast Cancer, celebrating the women/men that are in remission and remembering those that we have lost. Trinnette Cooper, Paula Borden, Brenda Mitchell, and Chanel Blaylock are partners of HAPI who aided in the events’ success.
