2016 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 Community Health Internship Program (CHIP), the programs in Erie, Lehigh Valley, New Jersey, and Pittsburgh were also represented.

A plenary session followed the poster presentations. Executive Director Lucy Wolf Tuton welcomed attendees and thanked all those who help sustain this collaborative program. She introduced Philadelphia’s Health Commissioner, Thomas Farley, MD, MPH, who spoke briefly about key challenges surrounding health improvement and wellness in Philadelphia and beyond. A short video providing perspectives from the students’ BTG CHIP experiences followed. The plenary session concluded with the keynote speech from the 2016 Bridging the Gaps awardee, Andre Robert Lee.
