2014 Symposium Highlights

David SheffAs in previous years, the Annual Symposium in Philadelphia began with students presenting posters on their projects, in dialogue with community representatives, public health officials, agency personnel, grantmakers, and university faculty and staff. In addition to the Philadelphia BTG CHIP interns, the programs in Erie, Lehigh Valley, New Jersey and Pittsburgh were also represented. The plenary session followed, in which Executive Director Lucy Wolf Tuton welcomed attendees and offered gratitude to all those who help sustain this collaborative program. In addition, the 2014 BTG CHIP Student Coordinators presented a video that illustrated the broad reach of BTG by highlighting the many community organizations where the interns worked. The session culminated with the keynote address presented by 2014 Bridging the Gaps awardee David Sheff.
