As you walk around the college this week (and hopefully future weeks) or look at photos online, you may see people sporting some very cool, COPH-branded, fun-top-ten-listing, multi-seasonally appropriate long-sleeved t-shirts. This is a fund-raiser for our student association that also allows you to sport your school spirit! $20 for students, $25 for faculty, staff and alumni. We have sizes M-2XL, but some sizes are going fast. We also will be ordering smalls, so chime in if that’s what you need. Let email@example.com know if you’re interested! (We can figure out shipping even, if you’re a distance student!) Want to know what it says? Click here to download a PDF of the text: T-shirt for NPHW
For the kickoff of National Public Health Week, six teams composed of mixes of students, staff and faculty, ventured across the UNMC campus looking for examples of public health in action. Teams took photos with their examples and earned points for including certain things in their shots. The last way that they can achieve extra points is up to YOU, UNMC colleagues!
Each team’s portfolio of photos will be published on this blog, Look through ALL of the teams and pick the set that you think are the most creative, strongest, illustrative examples of public health. Then, using your UNMC.edu email, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the team name as your subject line (“Team Purple” or “Team Plague,” etc). One vote per email address until midnight on Thursday, April 4. The winning team will be announced during PHamily PHeud on Friday, April 5 from 11:30 am from 1:00 pm in MCPH 3013.
As part of our celebration of 2013 National Public Health Week, the UNMC CoPH Student Association is taking this opportunity to start this blog to communicate with our community — fellow students, faculty and staff, alumni. We’ll continue to have a presence on Facebook (join us there by following this link), but this will be a much more accessible way for us to reach a wider audience with a variety of different announcements, communications and activities.
