It was wonderful to represent the SCRHRC at the ninth annual Jean Elaine Mills Health Symposium at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. The symposium honors the memory of Ms. Mills, a 1984 MPA graduate of ECU’s master of public administration / community health program who died of breast cancer in 2000.
ECU offers a sparkling new health sciences campus and Deans across multiple health fields – medicine, dentistry, nursing and allied health – who are each committed to 1] enhancing diversity in education and 2] reducing rural health disparities. Wonderful folks doing wonderful work!
And ECU really did a terrific job of making the keynote speech, by one of our very own, available as video. Folks who can stand an hour of Jan talking about rural health may also spot two one-time locals, Libby Baxley and Minnjuan Flournoy, in the audience.
