ToriSee the article from the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice that includes our own epidemiologist Victoria "Tori" Roy.  She was recognized as one of four “Students Who Rocked Public Health 2022” for their work in Updating Community Health Assessments in Georgia.

“All four students embarked on this project to meet applied practical experience requirements of their respective degree programs, but they went above and beyond,” says Dr. Allison Chamberlain. “As the project progressed and they learned more about the CHA process and what the district ultimately wanted to use the assessments for, the student team created county-specific summary profiles and a ‘how-to’ guide to instruct future personnel interested in replicating their process when updating the CHAs again in the future.”
