More than 60 students and alumni in the School of Health Sciences and Practice put their best foot forward and met with advisers at the 8th Annual Career Mentor Session hosted by the Student Healthcare Executives Club (StuHE) on November 16 under the guidance of advisors Denise C. Tahara, M.B.A., M.Phil, Ph.D., associate professor of public health practice and director, M.P.H. Studies, and Michael P. Shakarjian, Ph.D., assistant professor and program director, M.P.H. Environmental Health Science Studies. The Medical Education Center lobby was filled with stations for participants to meet and network with public health professionals serving as career mentors, offering feedback on their resumes and tips for searching for a job. Seventeen career mentors included alumni and professionals representing behavioral/community health, global health, environmental health, hospital systems, emergency preparedness, pharmaceuticals, county health commissioners and federally qualified health centers. Remote access mentor sessions were available for distance learning students as well as off-site mentors. Ben C. Watson, Ph.D., vice dean of the School of Health Sciences and Practice, offered his guidance on careers in public health. "The event was, once again, a great success. It was a great opportunity for presenting a diverse range of health care opportunities in the field of public health," said StuHE president Namrata FNU.
