School of Public Health marks Peace Corps' 50th anniversary

On September 8, RSPH hosted a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps with the event, "Honoring Our Public Health Legacy, Inspiring Future Generations.” The event included a discussion with current Peace Corps Director Aaron Williams and a panel session with key public health professionals who have served during each decade of Peace Corps history.

In a special feature of the 50th anniversary celebrations, the Peace Corps and RSPH signed a partnership agreement for the school to join the Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program, a graduate school initiative— including financial aid and career-building internships— reserved especially for returned Peace Corps volunteers. As part of the new program, Fellows lead initiatives involving students in the Master's International Program that mimic the Peace Corps experience by serving international refugee populations in the Atlanta community.
