Environmental Health Science Club
Our monthly meeting will be next Tuesday, February 23rd at 7:00pm at Transmetropolitan downtown. The EHS Club has reserved the bigger room upstairs and will buy the first couple of pizzas. We will have a few announcements about upcoming events, but otherwise this meeting is meant to be a casual gathering so that we can all meet and get to know each other. It is surprising considering how small our department is that people still do not really have the opportunity to meet! So please come out and enjoy good food and delightful company!

CBCF General Mills Health Scholarship
The CBCF General Mills Health Scholarship was established in 1998 as CBC Spouses partnered with General Mills to increase the number of minority students pursuing degrees in the fields of medicine, engineering, technology, nutrition, and other health-related studies. Since the inception of the program, General Mills has invested more than $1,000,000 to underwrite this initiative. The CBCF General Mills Health Scholarship has served hundreds of students over the past decade, and has helped to create leaders in the medical and health-related fields. Deadline: Feb 28th
The Summer Immersion Project is an exciting international practicum/Volunteer opportunity in Guatemala, Central America. Our non-profit organization offers, field experience and an opportunity to work directly with underserved communities in the areas of Public Health and Social Work. Participants will work with Clubs de Niños y Niñas de Centro America (Boys and Girls Clubs of Central America) and will be guided to conduct Community Assessments, Engage Communities, and Implement Programs in a global setting, with an opportunity to practice Spanish. It is my hope that this unique study abroad experience will provide students with an opportunity to learn more about global need and create a positive change. Please contact me with any questions about this project at email@example.com. FYI: There are currently $250.00 scholarships available!
