Temple University College of Public Health is celebrating National Public Health Week with a series of events including a film screening, weeklong Lunch and Learn sessions, and the annual College of Public Health Research Day.
On Monday, April 2, the college screened The S Word, a powerful documentary that focuses on suicide attempt survivors, their families and their communities as they tell stories of resilience, hope, and reconnection. A discussion with the filmmaker followed the screening. Sponsored by the Temple University College of Public Health, IDEAL, the Temple University Wellness Resource Center and the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion.
Throughout the week, the college is hosting a Lunch and Learn series, hosted by faculty members throughout the college, on topics including sexually transmitted infections among Latin@s, the use of innovative technology and virtual environments in physical therapy and neuromotor sciences, and mass incarceration as a public health issue.
Friday, April 6, is the college’s annual Research Day, an event showcasing research in public health, social work, kinesiology and other clinical fields conducted by students who are working with mentorship from or in collaboration with faculty advisors. The event also serves as a training experience for students, since a critical element of research is dissemination of findings and interaction with professional colleagues. There will be citation awards for meritorious posters and a “Dean’s Award for Research Excellence.”
