Public health hackathon produces COVID-19 resources

In the last few days before instruction resumed at the University of Georgia, over 90 public health students were hard at work crafting infographics, data visualizations, policy briefs and even Tik Toks – all in aid of supporting communities with useful, evidence-based information on COVID-19.

“I have already received requests from nonprofits, local government, faith organizations and philanthropy for the materials produced,” said Adams. “I have no doubt that our students have made a contribution to the public’s health and the many organizations that are pushing information out to communities across our state.”

Senior Signature for Tate Center Plaque - Deadline Extended to June 30th

All May, August and December 2020 undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to include their name on the plaque. The deadline has been extended to June 30th. The first Senior Signature plaque was created in 1991 with just a few hundred signatures. Today, thousands of graduating students make a difference by donating a minimum $50 gift to the university. This gift includes a designation option so that graduates can give to any school, college, department, program, or scholarship that has had a personal impact on them during their time at UGA.
