Professionals Dinner last night was a huge success! Thanks to all the public health professionals and students who came to our annual networking event. We hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did. If you have comments or suggestions for ways that we can improve your future experiences at this event, feel free to shoot us an email at caluphc.publichealth@gmail.com! :)

And as the school year begins to wind down, we really have only one event left -- other than the 5K Nutty Run, which International Health Committee is working tirelessly to make that happen soon (more updates to come) -- and that is our END OF THE YEAR BANQUET on Thursday, May 1st! This will be a paid members only event, food will be provided, awards will be presented, and good times will be had. Keep checking back for announcement of time and location! 

Have a great weekend!
