Hello SPH students,
Many congratulations for finishing up the Fall semester with great effort and aplomb. We encourage you to take a few moments to recognize and reflect upon how far you’ve come, and to give yourself credit for all of your hard work this semester.
Our newsletter will be on a brief hiatus, but as always, you can follow us on Instagram and Twitter for public health news, events, and community happenings. We look forward to welcoming you back for the Spring semester, and keep an eye out for our upcoming GSGA events.
We hope that you will have a restorative Winter Break, and wish you a delightful holiday season and a most marvelous New Year!

Spotlight On: Intervene Upstream
Why Public Health?
Intervene Upstream is an online peer-reviewed public health publication run by and geared towards graduate students in public health. They share work written by students on a rolling basis, ranging from journalism, opinion pieces, and scientific articles, to personal narrative essays and literary fiction.
They are currently looking for answers to the question “Why Public Health?” You can share your story about why you are pursuing a degree in public health using this short survey, and if you’d like to expand upon this, they are also currently accepting longer submissions on their website.
NYS Open Meetings Law
Pursuant to the New York State Open Meetings Law, SPH students and members of the public have the right to attend meetings of the Graduate Student Government Association without voice. We will be holding our next meeting on January 5. A schedule of our Spring semester meetings will be included in our next newsletter.
Should you like to attend this meeting and observe, you may do so. Our meetings are currently being held virtually, so if you would like to sit in on one of these meetings send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours before the time of the meeting and we will send the Zoom link.
