The Master of Public Health (MPH) program is proud to recognize Ramona Prado-Olmos, Rebecca Krogstad, and Jacob Atkins for their participation in the recent Symposium on Student Research, Creative Activities, & Innovation, which took place on February 24, 2017. CSUSM actively encourages students to participate in research and the new MPH program is excited to contribute to this endeavor!
Their oral presentation was titled: The Pacific Islander Community Health Pilot Study: Preliminary Baseline Findings on Physical Activity, Body Composition, and Healthy Eating. Mentored by Dr. Christina Holub, Assistant Professor in Public Health, the students presented findings from the Pacific Islander Community Health Pilot Study, which is an academic-community partnership that aims to improve the wellbeing of Pacific Islanders through community-driven and culturally tailored programs.
We are proud of the new MPH Program and the commitment of our students to engage with communities to promote health. Please join us again in recognizing Ramona, Rebecca, and Jacob for their hard work and for being the first-ever public health students to participant in the research symposium.
