Congratulations to Harris Jamal, the 2018 recipient of the John J. Shuering Award
Congratulations to Chelsea Cary, this year's recipient of the Randall Manning Scholarship Award.
Randall Manning was a longtime supporter of the UGA BSEH Program and hosted hundreds of interns during his tenure at the Georgia EPD. This award is in his honor and recognizes outstanding student performance in an internship. This year’s awardee secured a nationally competitive internship through the https://www.facebook.com/NEHA.org/ Environmental Health Association’s National En...vironmental and Public Health Internship Program (NEPHIP). This prestigious internship offered a competitive salary, moving expenses, and an independent project within a public health department. This student moved to North Carolina last summer and worked on a usable database that residents of all 110 counties of NC can now use as a resource when they or their children are found to have high blood levels. Not only did she complete this database, but also, she was in the field with her mentor directly working with the public on dangerous lead levels and abatement in the home. Her work was recognized in a national article in the Journal of Environmental Health.
