April 19, 2011 (Inaugural) Fellows UNC Summer Public Health Fellowship Program Dear 2010 Fellows: We are thrilled to welcome you to the new Summer Public Health Fellowship Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC SPHF) and what promises to be an amazing experience! We designed this program to guide you through an eight-week journey towards a rewarding and impactful career, with public health as the featured path. We hope that along the way you will be inspired to become a public health professional (and Tar Heel!), and that the knowledge, connections and community gained from this program will help you achieve your goals. Whether or not you choose public health pursuits, we look forward to partnering with you so that you can have the best possible experience in this program. This summer, we challenge you to: Ask questions, as they will lead to knowledge and understanding; Work hard, as your efforts will lead to valuable lessons and triumphs; Allow yourself to grow and change, as doing so will lead you closer to your aspirations; And, have fun! In return, we will do the same, as our partnership will surely benefit all of us. Our communities are in need of bright, energetic and highly motivated leaders who want to make a difference and are well-equipped to do so. We look forward to helping you change the world for the better!

Sincerely,

Felicia Mebane, Ph.D., M.S.P.H. Director, UNC SPHF Assistant Dean for Student Affairs

Candice Powell, M.Ed. Assistant Director, UNC SPHF Student Recruitment Coordinator

UNC Summer Public Health Fellows Program 2010

The UNC Summer Public Health Fellowship Program Empowering students to pursue public health Background: Dr. Felicia Mebane, Assistant Dean for Students at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, created the UNC Summer Public Health Fellowship Program (UNC SPHF) to help level the playing field for bright and motivated minority and disadvantaged students who are exploring careers in public health. Inspired by the School’s mission to train a diverse cadre of public health professionals and her own summer program experiences, UNC SPHF is the School’s first large scale summer program. UNC SPHF is designed to feature the disciplines represented by all of the School’s departments and serve as a cornerstone for department-specific summer programs, such as the Biostatistics Summer Undergraduate Research Education program. With funding and a vision for the program, Dr. Mebane added Ms. Candice Powell to the UNC SPHF leadership team in Fall 2009 to serve a critical role in the program’s operations and leadership. Purpose: UNC SPHF aims to help increase the diversity of the public health professions by sharing with students (primarily) from minority and disadvantaged communities the knowledge, connections and skills that can help them successfully pursue public health careers. Fellows who complete this program will:         

Learn about core concepts and issues across public health disciplines and specialties Develop and apply (via an externship) a full range of job searching skills and materials Practice effective communication skills Reflect on personal goals, values and beliefs and how they influence career choices Establish online and leadership identities Network with world-class public health academics and professionals Build a professional community of peers and mentors Develop an understanding of what it takes to succeed as a public health professional Have fun!

The Village: Dr. Barbara K. Rimer, Dean, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, encouraged the School’s Office of Student Affairs to be as creative and supportive of the Fellows as possible. Consequently, Dr. Mebane, Ms. Powell and Ms. Amy Hitlin (the UNC SPHF Externship Partner Program coordinator) have enlisted a cadre of top-notch students, professors, staff, alumni and externship sponsors to provide the seminars, workshops, extracurricular activities and support that comprise this program. Funding: The 2010 UNC SPHF Program is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration via a grant to the UNC Health Careers Opportunity Program (UNC HCOP). Mr. Larry Keith, former leader of the UNC HCOP grant, graciously agreed to add this new program to their grant proposal in 2008 and worked with Dr. Mebane to add the public health components. The UNC Provost’s Office also provided funding.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? … Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do... It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” —Marianne Williamson
