Title: Capacity Building in Public Health Through Strategic Interdisciplinary Partnerships Guest Speaker: Jessica Schwind

Date: Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Time: 10:00am – 11:00am CT / 9:00am – 10:00am MT

Description: The primary goals of public health are to prevent disease and injury, as well as promote healthy behaviors. Public health is not focused on the individual, but rather aims to improve the overall health in populations. As a result, people from many different walks of life are impacted by public health policy and practice. This presentation will briefly explain the core functions of the field, as well as examine potential areas for alliance across multiple disciplines. In particular, the role of the health sciences librarian will be highlighted and examples of past collaborations between the public health and library workforce will be discussed.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Jessica Smith Schwind is an epidemiologist and public health program evaluator. Dr. Schwind is an Assistant Professor in the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health at Georgia Southern University.
