“The Summer Session at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, was a great opportunity for me to engage in continuing education that enabled me to enrich my understanding of epidemiological concepts and enhance my ability to adapt and apply epidemiological measures to improve my support of public health initiatives and develop the awareness necessary to select and apply intervention strategies” ~Brenda W. Campbell Jenkins, MPH, Ph.D 2022 Participant

“The Summer Session in Epidemiology was a great learning experience. Research is required in my role as a pediatric emergency medicine fellow, and these classes supplemented my knowledge of interpreting and understanding data. The faculty were wonderful; their combination of lectures and small group activities engaged people from many backgrounds with different perspectives. Overall, it was great, and well worth the time!” ~Jordan Ferguson, DO 2022 Participant
