Hornung hosts Kentucky Governor’s Scholars
In July, Carl Hornung, PhD, Professor, Epidemiology and Population Health, interacted with 19 students from the Kentucky Governor’s Scholars program during their visit to the UofL’s Paris Simulation Center. Dr. Hornung worked with Ian Bielman, Simulation Specialist, to create hands-on scenarios to engage the young audience. The four scenarios included birthing, out of hospital cardiac arrest, drug overdose, and trauma related to an unrestrained passenger in a car accident. Cindy Brainard was the high school faculty leader for the group.
LaJoie participates in ISLP program in Botswana
Scott LaJoie, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Health Promotion and Behavioral Sciences, joined UofL’s International Service Learning Program (ISLP) as a scholar this past spring and traveled with the program to Botswana (south-central Africa) in May. ISLP is an opportunity for students and faculty from disciplines across the university to interact with, educate and learn from people in Croatia, Belize, Botswana, the Philippines, and Trinidad-Tobago. This is the first time that SPHIS has been invited to participate and Dr. LaJoie will be recruiting students to travel with him to Botswana this year. Look for an invitation to learn more about this program early in the fall semester.
