2015 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.

In the plenary session, BTG Executive Director Lucy Wolf Tuton, PhD, welcomed attendees and, in celebration of Bridging the Gaps' 25th anniversary, spoke about the program's beginnings. She thanked all those who helped launch BTG and those who continue to sustain this collaborative endeavor. Dr. Tuton recognized the BTG alumni in attendance, and alumnus Steven Chapman, MD, spoke about the importance of the Bridging the Gaps program and its role in the future of medicine. Dr. Tuton also welcomed the Reverend Isaac Miller, a longtime Philadelphia community leader, who introduced the 2015 keynote speaker, the actor and activist Danny Glover.
