As we gathered the new students together for their class photo last semester, it was a proud moment that gave me pause. No longer a brand-new program, we have matriculated our tenth class this fall, and have conferred the M.P.H. degree upon more than 190 students thus far. Many of the graduates are working in the Southwest Ohio region, which has been one of the goals of the program since its founding. However, the reach of the program is well beyond Southwest Ohio. The M.P.H. Admissions Committee continues to receive a number of international applications above and beyond an increasingly competitive pool of U.S. applicants. WSU M.P.H. alumnae can now be found across the map of the United States and some internationally. Several of our graduates have become health commissioners, and most have risen to positions of increased responsibility since completing their degree. Our M.P.H. program is complemented by affiliated programs including the dual degree Physician Leadership Development Program, the Certificate in Health Care Management program, the Wright State University Raj Soin College of Business M.B.A. program, and an exciting Global Health Program. Our current four concentration areas of Public Health Management, Health Promotion and Education, Global Health, and Emergency Preparedness remain robust with dynamic leadership. You will be hard-pressed to find a more enthusiastic and student-centered group of faculty, or a more interesting, dedicated, and diverse group of students. It is indeed my honor and pleasure to lead this M.P.H. program as it continues to mature and excel. Mission To advance the public health of western Ohio and beyond by providing interdisciplinary graduate education, research, service, and leadership. Vision To be the Master of Public Health degree program of choice for professionals who are committed to community and global health leadership. M.P.H. Student Cohort fall 2013

2 M.D./M.P.H. PLDP Update The Physician Leadership Development Program (PLDP) offers medical students management and leadership skills, as well as knowledge of health economics and population-based medicine. It is designed to develop future leaders of the health care system, including CEOs of health care organizations, such as hospital systems, government agencies, nonprofit organizations and for-profit health care companies. In August 2012, Colleen McCormick ( 13) was recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA) Foundation with a Physicians of Tomorrow Award. In September 2012, the PLDP hosted an advance screening of Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare. Over 125 students, faculty, and community members attended the screening. The PLDP students also presented the first Medical Student Leadership Conference in October This half-day conference provided 57 medical students with information, networking opportunities, and small group workshops led by community physician leaders. Colleen McCormick ( 13) and Betty Cheney (MS-3) presented Creating Educational Experiences for Dual Degree Students: The Longitudinal Clinical Experience at the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research Annual Conference, in Washington, D.C., March 11-12, Kiran Faryar (MS-4) presented Students Teaching Students: An Introduction to Healthcare Leadership for First Year Medical Students at the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research Annual Conference, in Washington, D.C., March 11-12, In May 2013, five PLDP students completed their M.D./M.P.H. dual degrees and are currently in their residencies: Meaghan Ebetino (Family Medicine, Wright State University), Robert Eick (Family Medicine, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill), Kiran Faryar (Emergency Medicine, University of Louisville), Matias Iberico (Internal Medicine, Kaiser Permanente, San Francisco), and Colleen McCormick (Pediatrics, Northwestern University, Chicago). Colleen McCormick, M.D., M.P.H. ( 13) was presented with the Reach Out of Montgomery County Student Volunteer Appreciation Award and with the American Medical Women s Association Glasgow-Rubin Citation for Academic Achievement. Meaghan Ebetino, M.D., M.P.H. ( 13) was recognized with the Geriatric Medicine Award at graduation. Practice placement making a difference Roopsi Narayan is a current second year M.P.H. student whose practice placement project was recently featured in the Yellow Springs News. A practice placement is an opportunity for each student to get involved in a public health organization to see how they collaborate with the community to achieve objectives and for the student to take part in a project that assists the organization in achieving its mission. As a student in the Emergency Preparedness concentration of the program, she decided to explore options within her local health department which developed into a connection with Dr. Don Brannen, an epidemiologist at the Green County Combined Health District (GCCHD). He was very welcoming of her as he had previously worked with several WSU M.P.H. students. 2 Through her connection with Dr. Brannen, she was able to take part in three distinct projects: Radiological Disaster Preparedness Training for Public Health Workers for Medical Reserve Corps and interested citizens; Sleep Safe Infant Study; and the study in which Roopsi Narayan was published regarding water de-fluoridation in Yellow Springs municipal water supply. The de-fluoridation surveillance study done by the GCCHD preliminarily found that local children who have been exposed to fluoridated water for a shorter period of time had higher rates of tooth decay. The overall hopes of the study are to examine a larger number of children over a longer period of time in order to evaluate the long-term effects of de-fluoridated water. The results from the study come with a caveat as more participation is needed to strengthen the research data, but unbiased long-term research is essential in determining the health impact that public health policies are having on populations. Ms. Roopsi Narayan is highly intelligent and capable. I had the opportunity to host her during her practice placement rotation for her M.P.H. degree. Without reservation, she has been the most outstanding student I ve had, Dr. Brannen said. Aside from data analysis, Roopsi was given the opportunity to sit in on multiple tabletop exercises, some of which were held within the health department and others where several agencies such as the MMRS, Red Cross, the National Guard, and other health departments participated. During these exercises, she met with several WSU M.P.H. graduates who are now working with public health agencies around Ohio. Roopsi was excited to be given the opportunity to not only take part in a real public health study, but also to watch public health leaders make decisions in different stimulated situations. It was a rewarding experience to spend so many hours with public health leaders, listening to them, and talking with them about their roles, plans, and goals for the future of our community, she said. With the de-fluoridation project I hope to make a difference, even if it is tiny, in the dental health of Greene County residents.

3 Student Recognition Ceremony and Reception held The Center for Global Health held its annual Student Recognition Ceremony and Reception on April 26, Prior to the ceremony, the M.P.H. program held its first annual Culminating Experience (CE) poster session. M.P.H. CE Poster Presentation Winners 1st place Daniel Shea 2nd place 3rd place Ethan Jones Antoinette Matie Sangye and Chris Buck Dan Shea discusses his poster with Dr. Naila Khalil Ohio s public health leaders tell their stories The new Leader Feature will appear in each edition in our newsletter. In it, some of Ohio s public health leaders will share their personal stories and journeys of leadership. Read and/or view their stories in each edition and be inspired! Julianne Nesbit, RS, M.P.H. Julianne Nesbit is the current Health Commissioner at the Clermont County Health Department. How did you arrive at your current position? My undergraduate degree is in environmental management. I stumbled across a position as a Sanitarian for Warren County Combined Health District and was hooked on public health from there. I received my Master of Public Health in 2005 from Wright State University and took a position as assistant M.P.H. Student Excellence Awardees The following M.P.H. students were recognized at the Center for Global Health student recognition ceremony: Kathleen Henschel, WSU Graduate Excellence Award; Ajiri Ikede, Environmental Health; Maalinii Vijayan, Epidemiology; Angela Albrecht, Emergency Preparedness Concentration; Melissa McMillian Michener, Global Health Concentration; Meaghan Ebetino, Public Health Management Concentration Michele Battle-Fisher, Maalinii Vijayan, Melissa McMillian Michener, and Dr. James Ebert Originally in The Ohio State University Center for Public Health Practice July 2013 publication cph.osu.edu/practice/leader-feature, given permission to re-print. Leader Feature health commissioner with Clermont County General Health District. April 1, 2013, I became health commissioner. What advice would you have for others who are aspiring to be public health leaders? My career has been very fulfilling so far and I look forward to the next phase. If aspiring public health professionals are interested in the big picture of public health, I highly recommend they pursue the career they want. Within my first two years as a sanitarian, I knew I wanted to be a health commissioner someday, but it takes time to learn the ropes. I have had great mentors in my career, and I would encourage aspiring leaders to learn all they can from their mentors, take from them the things that you can use, but at the same time develop your own styles and views. You have to be your own leader. M.P.H.

4 2013 Wright State University This project was funded by the Ohio Department of Education through a 2010 United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Team Nutrition training grant. The USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer. Public health students work on statewide school wellness initiatives Wright State University public health faculty and students have been busy implementing and collecting data on two projects funded by the USDA Team Nutrition. Smarter Lunchrooms Ohio is a statewide dissemination project to create and evaluate smarter strategies in 50 Ohio cafeterias. The Smarter Lunchrooms Movement is a national program created by the Cornell Center for Behavioral Economics in Child Nutrition Programs. It is based on behavioral economic theory of nudging individuals to a more desirable choice. My Physical Activity Pyramid encourages classroom teachers to create a moving culture by using physical activity as an instructional tool. Smarter Lunchrooms Ohio The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 altered the foods provided by the National School Lunch Program. The federal policy created increased access to whole grains, low-fat milk, and a variety of fruit and vegetables. How and where the foods are offered, though, can significantly influence what foods are actually chosen and eaten by students. Smarter strategies place healthy foods in prime locations and make the items appealing through names, packaging, and presentation. Graduate public health students at Wright State University play a key role in the Smarter Lunchrooms Movement. Faculty and students are working with five districts, representing 15 local schools. Student teams spend five to 15 hours a week in these schools conducting assessments, meeting with school and wellness committee staff, making strategy recommendations, and collecting production and tray waste data. Outside the cafeteria, students and faculty analyze data, build implementation plans and create reports that share information in meaningful ways. Health Promotion and Education Concentration director Marietta Orlowski, is the evaluator for the statewide project. Dr. Orlowski, with support from Dr. Bill Spears and graduate research assistant Roopsi Narayan, aggregate the data from all participating cafeterias and will create Success Stories to be shared with participating schools. Ten graduate public health students are actively involved in this project. Students have completed practice placement hours, collected data for culminating experiences as well as learned about the process of dissemination and evaluation of an evidence-based public health project. The involvement of the public health students has really improved the reach and capacity building of our efforts. The students are a tremendous asset! says Ohio team nutrition coordinator Susan Patton.

INTEGRATED LESSONS Make it Count! Order Up Hit the Deck Go-Go My Classroom Physical Activity Pyramid activity can be accumulated throughout the school day. The categories of the classroom physical activity pyramid reflect five different types of opportunities for integrating physical activity into the school day: everyday activities, activity breaks, integrated lessons, active games and celebrations, and physical education. Public health professionals, directors of physical activity, and physical educators can use the pyramid to help teachers identify the numerous opportunities for activity integration, track progress, and organize a plan to meet the recommendation for daily physical activity. The broad categories of the pyramid create a flexible structure that allows teachers to tailor physical activity goals and integration to their classroom context in other words, to make it their own. The classroom physical activity pyramid framework came from the activity pyramid within the Ohio Physical Education Academic Content Standards Evaluation System. The pyramid tool was highlighted in the national U.S.D.A. Team Nutrition Fall Newsletter and can be accessed through the resource library at nal.usda.gov/state-resources/createclassroom-moves. The pyramid was created by Marietta Orlowski, Kevin Lorson (Department of Kinesiology and Health), Anna Lyon (Department of Teacher Education) and Sue Minoughan (Fairborn City Schools).

Most other fellows historically held Master of Health Administration or Master of Business Administration degrees. Nikki Rogers, Ph.D., and Kelly Leach Kelly was a WSU Grad-Prep Scholar from and wrote the following. The program really helped me with the application process for grad school. My mentor, Dr. Nikki Rogers, was especially integral to the process; she really helped me figure out what type of research I am interested in and pushed me to be more assertive so that more professional opportunities would be available for me. Because of this, I gave three presentations in the last year, including my first ever oral presentation at a major conference: the European Khat Research Program Conference in Frankfurt, Germany. This presentation, along with the research project Dr. Rogers assigned me, has led to my first two publications which are currently under review. This fellowship allowed me to seriously bolster my CV, and I gained a lifetime friend and mentor in the process.
